To Karl, who practically took a swing at the director of this fabulous film, honestly you have no idea.
Please do tell me why this film was so bad? I found it inspiring and uplifting in a sense. I myself have an autistic brother and your dreadful use of the word "feral" was quite offensive.
To say it was one of the worst films you have ever seen is a complete utter joke. The director and actors have put countless hours into this film and the intriguing storyline was moving. Many movies out there either have no storyline or lack of effort in not only the directing of the film but the lack of professionalism on the actors behalf.
Again, I think you need to look at this film from a different angle as it seems you have only looked at it from a selfish point of view.
For the record, I thought it was an astounding film, absolutely magnificent performances by Vincent and Adele. Top work!
