The child losing scene was so badly acted and misdirected it makes you wonder why would they even go for such intense scenes with such horrible writing and directing.

( Juliet dies, instead of managing to get clean) It fails as a Post Apocalyptic story, as there is virtually no storyline there, and it fails as a "Smart" movie.

I understand it's supposed to add unexpected depth but it is so far fetched and contrived, and worse, rather obvious before it occurs, that it is the thinnest thought passing itself off as an idea.

The backstory is a waste of time, and the energy could have been put to better use.

Her facial expressions are so fake and confusing.

The storyline is so predictable and cliche that I would find it hard for anyone to get true enjoyment from this.

I actually thought the story telling using this technique intriguing.

Also the end, well, felt forced and somehow plain boring to me.

lol He is nevertheless captivated by her and so the story begins..This film is very enjoyable and genuinely keeps you interested and entertained throughout.. The film has a warmth and innocence to it that the writer conveys without making it overly complicated, despite Juliettes troubled life and grim realities of living in a post apocalyptic world.

They also mix USA-type gas station with obvious French trucks which just makes it even more confusing.

Yes it may have been predictable, but it was suspenseful, and well acted.

:)Well done Mathieu on the brilliant script and execution and well done to the stunning cast for their performances.. Watch out for Brittany, she is a megastar in the making.. I just hope that Hollywood does not ruin this lovely actress or steal her innocence:)Thank you :)

He has a couple of pretentious lines about how hard it was for him to cope with becoming rich or something, not particularly interesting either.

Compelling Story, Powerful Ending, Weak Actors .

They are sometimes slow, sometimes fast, sometimes strong, sometimes weak.

I get bored too easily if it's the same scene drawn out for too long.

I highly recommend it to people that want something more than just cheap thrills.

Little new to offer, but largely entertaining.

and then slides into unbelievable, and then down to tedious, continuing to the depths of tediously unbelievable, before tumbling with a splat into the sucky-tank.

Sounds cliche, right?

In out lives we may have to face our own monsters, real or events which we may not want to face but we know we have to do so, this film with the 2 story lines uses both real monsters and the monsters we may have to face in real life and joins then up in a way which made for a rather enjoyable watch.

More than that, its engaging and inherently watchable.

His motivation is mostly sex, and he's quite dull.

snore.

Don't waste your time.

Pretentious, badly written and laughably acted .
