Doesn't meet expectations
15 February 2019 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

When, 10 years ago, Swedish director Fredrik Edfeldt feature film debuted with the amazing "Flickan", I was totally blown away. Therefore, my expectations for "Faro" was high - but I was sadly let down. Here something is faltering, unfinished.
