Fantastically dark and beautiful!
11 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen!

It is very artistic and captivating with a beautiful dark atmosphere. It is deep and real in the way it display emotions.

Many movies about love seems so fake and cliché, not this one. But I think you must have experienced true love to appreciate how good Paint It Black portrays the devastation of suddenly losing it.

The soundtrack adds a lot to enhance the melancholy emotions, together with dreamy color filters and professional cinematography.

I give Paint It Black 10/10
