Not what I was expecting
31 May 2019 | by hiacios-80910See all my reviews

I don't mean that in a good way. The premise of the story is simple but the writer tries to make it more interesting than it is by making it unrealistically tragic and leaving you trying to figure out what the film was trying to do. A love story with unnessasary addons to over complicate the film.
