the director thinks too much
19 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

I can only say that the director thinks too much. Multi-line narrative, but the whole story was cut apart. There are too many roles involved, too many complicated plots, too many side details to be cut off, and the result is that the slow pace makes people fall asleep. The camera language tends to be exquisite, trying to show rich feelings, and actually more procrastinating.
