This movie is like a lit match in the darkness... Savor it while it lasts!
26 August 2020 | by markovd111See all my reviews

I don't usually watch movies like this, yet the synopsis caught my attention. It seemed like a weird, but beautiful romantic movie about a man in crisis and a maid who helps him. Movie is nothing like that. It's a little bit too long for my taste and I would take at least 20 minutes of random and unnecessary footage. Still, in it's portrayal of characters who are not perfect it manages to show beauty and good in life through it's weird way. It's a slow movie where things of little to no significance happen, but it's all worth for the last 3 minutes of it. If you get that and what it means, you will like this movie. It isn't perfect. It isn't for everybody. It tries too much to be artistic but fails. But I still like it and recommend it, at least for one watch. 8/10!
