decent
1 April 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film about a profound lonely man, about family and jealousy. It reminds Othello , using the tradition of East. Corect crafted, it is saboted by the end who you hope be open. For a Eastern, Albanian, Kurdish or Serbian, all is clear. And only the wrong final solution can be a problem. For the cinema viewer, the great problem remains the expectation. It deserves be better and it has all the pieces to be. But something, and the main excuse is its status of debut of director is not real convincincing. Zagros is too weak and the reactions almost fakes. But , sure, it is a decent film.
