I liked the novel by Herman Koch better, but still this was a riveting film. The ending was abrupt and too easy, considering the complexity of the moral dilemma the parents faced. Still, well worth watching.

It's interesting how different this is than the book and the American film version.

I enjoyed being wrong about the characters, that I had pegged them to be a certain way but in the end the tables turn.

The movie really signifies the importance of family ties within Italian culture and how these ties often work together. While at the same time showing the cracks within the society.

A withering portrayal of the well off in western society, not just Italy. Complex characters who turn out to be very different than initial impressions.

The ending left me feeling robbed, but overall, a beautiful film.
