you won't dare to look twice
10 April 2018 | by paulkovacs88See all my reviews

A raw but a real description of how a sickness can replace a healthy reality. I like how the director manage to show us a dark part of life. Thru the image, dare to bring a taboo subject, to make us realize, that this is to an important aspect that is not proper managed by us, people. In some parts felt like a documentary, or like a visual journal, delivered almost ' umbilical ' by the mother and son. This is how i like mostly the european movies despite us american movies. American movies are to commercial
