Odd Film, Not Great
24 May 2019 | by socratesadamoSee all my reviews

What is this obsession we all seem to share about men getting pregnant? Be it the French, Italians, Americans, or Japanese, we as human all seem to have this same idea. An impossibility, it is the stuff of dreams, weird wacked-out movies, and cold-sweat nightmares.

Maybe it's because in this day and age women can do everything men can do, but men can never experience the miracle of birthing a child. I don't know. But I do know that this film is just okay at it's very best moments, and overall it's no more than boring and frustrating. There's no big payoff or much else good for that matter. Do not recommend.
