Pathetic acting. Pathetic dialogue. Weird direction.
18 September 2018 | by educallejeroSee all my reviews

And yet, by the end, I started to feel that all that was awful, actually made sense. Its a twisted comedy that suffered because a lot of the decisions (by the actors, by the director) made the movie annoying more than funny.

The movie is kind of "tale-like", only there is not escape from the ugliness of people, nor there is a clear answer of who is who on the tale. The situations are morally uncomfortable. The roles of the characters are not defined by their situations/status nor by the archetypes that start the story, but by their decisions. Again, I think the movie made some tragic unfunny/annoying decisions but it is quite smart and bold.
