Makes you think long after watching
15 February 2021 | by goonerchris-161-428318See all my reviews

I watched this after watching the trailer, though the trailer seems to be for another film I was not disappointed. I watched this with the wife on valentine's Day, thinking it was a bit of a romantic film and we both seemed to actually enjoy it. The film never tells you what it's about, it makes you use your brain to think and talk about what is happening and what did happen. We both worked out what the underling story was but there are so many questions you think and rethink after the film's finished and that's what I love about this film, it's not easily forgotten but I do want to see it again. When I do I will probably see it from a different view and end up with a different score. Watch it and enjoy the ride which I will be as interesting as mine
