      This movie is trite and unexciting, despite the appealing storyline behind it. I would think the Japanese and Koreans would have done better with this.

      Amy took up a job as a nurse taking care of very ill children at a remote

      hospital; it was very rundown so the authorities were in the process of moving the patients to another location.

      Calista Flockhart came across as a overly neurotic woman, who seemed to have no other vocabulary except the ‘F’ word, when caught in

I had found the first half rather intriguing; however the second half was ridiculous. Only the performances by Richard Roxburgh (Doctor Robert), and Yasmin Murphy (Maggie) were laudable; the rest was forgettable, just like the movie.
