Exhausting to watch but good!
5 February 2021 | by Queenie04See all my reviews

I'm glad I watched this film in my living room with the volume low and not at the cinema.

The dialogues were a bit on and off to me. It was a bit hard to keep up at times with all the shouting and swearing. Sometimes a bit too scholar on Marie's side, like she was reading her lines.

That said, I think the acting was really good. Enough to keep me captivated during the whole time. It felt authentic.

The aesthetic in general was raw and really beautiful.
