The Orphanage

Just caught this way cool movie. It's a supernatural thriller in the same family as The Sixth Sense and The Others. Nothing groundbreaking to the genre, just perfectly played cards throughout. The structure of this film is exquisiste, there is no line, prop or moment that is not integral to the movement of the story. Textbook screenwriting, in my humble opinion. A beautiful ending, and no "Oh C'mon!" moment that many of these movies have toward the end. It is also beautifully shot at a gorgeous location.
