Frank cuts his right hand in the kitchen, then when he is shown in the shower it's his left hand, and then in the next shot on the phone it's his right hand that is cut. In fact, the shower shot is seen through a mirror, so it is always his right hand the one he accidentally cut. See more »
..nice to see these little films with solid actors are still being made..
..it's not a box-office 'must-see' by any stretch.. but being a fan of both Imogen Poots, and Michael Nyqvist, it pretty much was an easy choice... she's one of those individuals that a decade will add little age to her appearance.. at 27, she has been acting for the past thirteen years, and she'll have a very long career should she so choose.. the story is nothing new, but all the leads, and the entire ensemble for that matter, are well cast, and their portrayals are true.. and there are a couple of scenes where you see just how good at their craft they all are.. it's not one that 'must-be'.. but it can be viewed again with some measure of pleasure
