Good Idea, poorly done.
26 September 2020 | by spinovaSee all my reviews

Newbie director/writer came with an splendid and fresh idea but he served it raw. What a shame! Actors played well their parts but the screenplay is shy developed and no ambition in directing either. It has nothing to do with the low budget/independent kind of movie this is. It's just, it needed condiments and a fancy plates.
