in a grocery store
4 September 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A girl. Her father. In a grocery store. An incident. And , step by step, the birth of chaos. A film who defines many lines, from the education to relationships, racism, frustrations, opinions and justice. All presented in inspired manner. And using the fine moral construction.The atmosphere of absurd theater remains the most useful tool for suggest the tension and the essence of it.
