Slow, boring and without purpose.
15 October 2017 | by sfetkosSee all my reviews

Do you like dull and boring movies? If so then this movie is for you. Same European low budget film which is based on deep meanings where only sophisticated audience will get. Also considered art, not for a shallow thinkers and audience like us. Acting of a 10 year old and a bird. Actually this movie is so boring I could place it in the top 10 boring movies of all time.
