Whatever It Takes

Frameline description: Maya is unwilling to accept the fact that her relationship with Tamar is over and will do Whatever It Takes to prevent her from leaving the country. [paraphrased slightly]

If you see any hint of either of these characters in your romantic partner, run away while you still can! I have a real problem with films in which none of the characters engages my sympathy or empathy, most especially when the characters are engaged in a co-dependent relationship of manipulation and learned helplessness. It's a well-made film, but not a fun movie to watch.
