challenge
20 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is a special challenge. Smart, amusing, thrilling. About life, a signature and the others. A water tank. A brain inside it. And , step by step, a fascinating metamorphosys. It reminds many Sci. Fi. films. But it is more than a short Sci. Fi. It reminds many comedies. But it is not exactly a comedy. A film proposing questions. Or a sort of modern fairy tale. Or, just more simple, a challenge. An usefull one.
