Not as bad as the other reviewers say
20 October 2019 | by greeknedSee all my reviews

This film is about grief, and being lost. It's not a badly made film, the subject matter while uneasy is something that other countries have to deal with a lot more than ours. Just because we are unfamiliar with it, or don't like it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It is well shot, has good acting and the music is spot on. It's the kind of film that may hold a mirror up to how one deals with relationships, and that may make people uncomfortable. As always, watch it and make your own mind up.
