Very watchable, stirring
1 February 2017 | by floatingpolarbearSee all my reviews

From the beginning, the location embraces you in all its details. A beautiful beach side hotel, once superb, now come down in the world, rough at the edges but still sublime in feeling. The director is a master at letting you figure out things instead of telling them to you. The movie shows you a period of time from the view of three very different people, the woman, her boyfriend, her son. It's honest filmmaking, without cheap tricks, true to each character. No one is served up for criticism, in fact, criticize if you dare, the subtlety of the story holds a mirror up to the viewer. The ghastliest moment is done with originality and resolved tacitly as if by angels.
