    And personally, I think that a thoughtful discussion of how this film does not reflect the actions of most caregivers and also promotes some ideas that are a little frightening is more valuable than making sure potential viewers of this movie don't have their viewing of it "spoiled."

    Grow up, chingchong. This is a movie. An illusion. A fake world.

    Having the ending spoiled is grounds for a shrug....and a yawn.

    •  again, I've no problem with MMG's discussion.... (0+ / 0-)

      .....of the issues, which are important.  I still strongly stand by my assertion of her ruining the movie for others in the course of her discussion, so as with Dumbo above, we'll just have to agree to disagree.  Yes, movies are an illusion, but they're powerful illusions.  Granted, with this as a non-English language film, the impact is lessened than if this were an American or UK production.
