What's it all about? Beats me.
15 April 2020 | by philiposlatinakisSee all my reviews

This is an art film and a little on the unfathomable side unless you happen to be Pakistani, or at least I hope it's more coherent to a Pakistani audience. Personally, I couldn't understand it. It's creatively edited and framed and it becomes progressively more watchable as it goes along, but the fundamental problem is that it's an "art film."
