This was truly an amazing and extraordinary film. An incredible story which yet could be true. Very sad, and dramatic but so different. I am truly pleased to have seen it. Food for thought …the horrors of war!

Grim but compelling. A lesson in forgiveness.

Speechless as usual.

Exceptional pieces of a story that only felled at the end. It explained in a human way the complexity of war.
5
Marvellous, tense, well acted.
5
A powerful & moving family drama, set against the horrors of war. Disturbing - a horrific discovery for the twins. Tragically, there are so many children in this world who are the product of rape in war. But the mother's determination to survive and to love & forgive was inspiring...

Harsh, gritty, at times very hard to watch. The - WOW!! Oedipus in spades. What a wonderful dénouement!

Possibly the most moving film I've ever seen. Terrible subject but treated so well.

What a shocker! Amazing film, very crude but it kept me awake for sure. No words…

Brutal but utterly gripping.

I thought I would struggle with this one and I did. It was very shocking & powerful. Horrific and dramatic. The ending was a little predictable in an awful way. Shakespearean influence?

Suspenseful, moving & clever, kept on edge of seat till end.
4
A very powerful film demonstrating the horrors of war and violence in a most unusual story.
4
Unbelievably powerful film and yet another reminder of the horrors of war. Inconceivable, if I'm honest. I am now going home to have a large drink!
4
Interesting film if a little slow & bleak. Not so sure that if I were one of the twins I'd have wanted to know I was the product of incest!

Wasn't expecting that! Thrilling!

Harrowing, very poignant. Unable to see sub titles. Glad I have good French!

Up to that point, it bowled along in the rather predictable way - then WHAM - stuffing well and truly knocked out.

Intricate story. Suppose it could happen. The horrors of war have no boundaries. Well acted & well told. On practicalities, spoiled a bit by not being able to read subtitles due to positions of people in front.

Incroyable!

Very good.

Tough film but beautifully filmed.
