The English title might be a bit of a spoiler if you will, but it might also prepare for what you are about to see. It's a very strange movie, mixing drama and action in a way, most might not have seen before. It flourishes and cherishes some unique small moments (which are very funny to say the least). It's moments that characters and especially mentality shine through in a big way.
The theme itself will not speak to a mainstream audience obviously, because of what the main characters goes through. Despite that, this is a really good movie, that does not shy away from it's own subject matter and might leave viewers feel a bit uncomfortable too. Fight choreography is good
