This is a 2005 American horror-thriller film directed by Walter Salles, starring Jennifer Connelly and Tim Roth.
The film is a remake of the 2002 Japanese film of the same name.
The film is based on the short story "Floating Water (浮遊する水)" from the horror anthology Honogurai mizu no soko kara (『仄暗い水の底から』) by Koji Suzuki (鈴木光司), author of Ring, which also had an American remake.
The film opens in 1974, as a young girl, Dahlia, stands outside after school in the rain, waiting for her mother.
Flash forward to 2005, we see a grown-up Dahlia (Jennifer Connelly) in the midst of a bitter mediation with ex-husband, Kyle (Dougray Scott), over custody of their daughter, Cecilia (Ariel Gade).
Kyle wants Cecilia to live closer to his apartment in Jersey City, but Dahlia wants to move to Roosevelt Island, where she has found a good school.
Kyle threatens to sue for full custody because he feels the distance is too great.
He also claims that Dahlia is "mentally unstable."
I expected more psychological twists to take over the simple storyline as in the "Psycho (1960)."
It turned out, however, to be rather monotonous.
Hitchcock could have done it better.

this is more drama-mystery w/quirky happenings surrounding the main characters and an apt. It's a good story, good plot, happiest ending probably possible and a good view, just not scary.
