Hell - well worth the watch
We watched Kystof Kieslwoski's Hell last night. Wow!
An intense and complex tale of three sisters and their disconnected lives. A story about relationships, unfulfilment, regret revenge and whole raft of other emotions - all portrayed with negative energy. A film devoid of any concept of forgiveness. Is that a vision of how Krieslowski sees Hell? This is not a feel-good film.
There are strong performances from the three actresses playing the sisters. The story is complex and stems from a event the girl's Father was caught up in when they were younger. It is a hard-hitting film which tells its story in an extremely realistic way. There are no silver-linings here.
I won't say any more in case I spoil it for you. Hard work, but well worth the investment.
I'll give it 7/10
