Disappointed
12 January 2021 | by madbird-61243See all my reviews

Comparing to the Mad Mad World, another movie talking about mental patient, it is, to be frank, quite a boring film. The whole story has just one story line, the love line between a man with psychosis and a girl who is a clinic psychologist student.

The male lead acts well as a man with psychosis. He has illusion and always hear sounds. Our society do need more of this type of movie. But the drama could be more audience friendly if there are multi story lines and richer content.
