The faces behind the horrors and the acts

I think the easiest mistake in the world is to — at the moment you recognize the flashbacks, as they come — throw up your hands and say, “I know this story.” The whole point of this movie is to tell you that you don’t, and never did: it’s a story that plays out in faces. It could be boring to hear or see the same stories we already know, so you have to come in at a different angle: not the horrors and the acts, but the faces and the feelings behind the horrors and the acts. That’s the story here.
