An fantastic adaption and upright outlooks
5 April 2017 | by grace_stoneSee all my reviews

while many people -- especially young females -- consider romance the greatest feeling in the world and devotion the greatest symbol of love, is sacrifice the thing to show that your love is the purest and irreplaceable?

a murder committed by a genius and solved by another genius. The movie has shown us not only a story of "how to get away with murder" and "you can never get away with murder", but also demonstrated that the sacrifice of oneself may be great, the sacrifice of others is definitely unacceptable.
