This movie was very hard to watch for a wide number of reasons. I didn't read up on what it was about untill after I had seen it, so I really had no idea what I was in for. What really got to me was the brutality and and the total absence of empathy. Be warned that this movie expose you to what went on during those 41 days in a raw heartbreaking details. Do a little research before you see this movie, and read Giedrius Gutauskas's review on imdb before you decide to watch it. Because this is most certainly not a movie for everybody.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Haven't seen An American crime, but I have seen the first one, and I pretty much felt the same way after watching them. I felt very sad, and wanted to just be a better person. Do something nice to someone, call my parents, get a hug from someone. People are way to mean to eachother.

When I was entering the information for this movie, it struck me a lot like The Girl Next Door, which was actually made into two movies:Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Doorand An American CrimeBrutal movies like these are tough to watch, but even more so when you realized they're based on actual events that were probably even worse when the happened in real life.
