A giant Truck that Crushes Your Expectations into Little Pieces of Regret!
First of all, I'd love to point out that I've seen all the 3 films of this director and this was the last one I saw.
When i saw the faces of the two actors, I though This would be a predictable ''there is a problem'', ''gangster'' film. Nevertheless I watched it for the sake of the director.
(I highly recommend his two other films. Both're very very awesome.)
When the film was over, i was left speechless, shocked and regretfully happy inside my heart.
This film goes over the humane problems and unfolds all the rigid and complex architecture of attitudes in two people: a gangster and an actor.
Acting, script/Story/plot, scenes, originality: all 10/10. This film is a masterpiece and is Highly Recommended to anyone who appreciates complex and masterful directing. Just watch it. Pure awesomeness. You will not forget this.
