So underrated yet so Powerful!
2 January 2019 | by ndmartin-37144See all my reviews

What a film! What a measage it carries!

Alot of the critics reviews don't seem to like this film but I think thats because they simply don't understand and haven't taken the time to be sucked into the story line and see the wider picture.

Throughout this film, the story will take you on a rollercoaster of confusion and feelings. You'll feel confused, you'll feel like you don't know what's going on, you'll feel like you missed something but believe me, thats supposed to happen.

With all these feelings going around, it takes the ending of the film for everything to be brought together and for the message to be found.

The message and the realisation is so strong that you will then feel heavy inside.

This film has been put together brilliantly. It takes just that bit of patience and understanding to realise what is going on, and that is just like the real thing.

This film has really opened my eyes and I thank it for that.

Again, brilliant movie, ignore what the critics say and just put the time in to truly understand it and enjoy.
