No cheap shocks, meticulous filmmaking
Like the protagonist, the movie is very cold and neat. Seeing the daily life of a paedophile is unsettling, but nothing is gratuitous. Influence from mentor Michael Haneke is obvious, in a good way.

Subtle and Interesting
Although It deals with a very dark and shocking subject, all the shocking action is only suggested, which helps you delve into the mind and routine of a perverted person.
