Slow, But Worthwile
21 February 2020 | by iboso64See all my reviews

One thing that kept going over and over in my mind was that this was based on a story that was serialized into 60 parts, in some magazine. And yet, with packing each episode into less than two minutes per, very little happens. Until about the last twenty minutes or so. Okay, so plenty happens, but not enough. This is one of those films that could have lost a few seconds, on average, from each and every shot. It would have made a taut 104 minutes, rather than an often tedious 114.
