A very enjoyable movie
1 April 2019 | by Toma11See all my reviews

Story is not impressive. I like cinematography very much and atmosphere in the movie. So, overall it is very good movie, definitely better than average Hollywood movie.

If you love this movie you will probably love "Our Little Sister (2015)". If you ask me I would say that "Our Little Sister" is better.

This is my first review and I hope it helps. I wrote it just because there was none :)
