Too much
23 June 2018 | by herve cadetSee all my reviews

Too much drama, too much whimpering, too many close-ups, too many tiring zoom-in, too many onion tears, too many sad love songs, lame directing and acting, too long. So disappointing. Some real good actors though but the show is not up the expectations...
