One of the things about "Seventeen" was that it had a vivid, sometimes intense, sometimes hilarious scene about an affair, from which the main characters really didn't even realize they were in. "Seventeen" follows a very similar pattern, but this time, you don't realize what you are in for. In one sense, you know you're in for a horror movie - you know there is going to be a horror element to this story - but this story is far from being any kind of horror movie. There are some moments of intense, quite grotesque violence, but they are so few that you don't even notice them until it's too late. Like the early scene where the professor comes to her and prays with her, the music and her final words to him express how alone she is. This is not some twisted master-slave plot, this is something much more subtle. This is much more of an intimate story about a mother and daughter. She is a doctor, she has a daughter, she goes to an apartment, she takes pictures and sends them to a couple of friends, and the next morning she is found dead. The new neighbors come to visit the apartment and are shocked by what they find. After all, they're just the ones who lived the day with her. The way the story is told is different from the book, but in the book it is almost one of those strange events in that don't happen and then you think to yourself - why are they not in the book? In the book, you have to feel something. You have to connect to the story and understand it, but in this film, you just don't have to feel anything, you just know what is going to happen. The film has been well-filmed and the acting is great, but the script is flat and the flow is very uneven. There are too many scenes of casual conversation, and the film has too many scenes of vague, unbelievable violence. The situation at the end of the film is quite different from the book, but the film's ending was not what I was expecting. I do not think the film is bad, I just think it was not quite as good as the book. I would recommend this movie, because it is a very unique story.
