Constant anxiety
23 April 2020 | by chrang-50015See all my reviews

This movie is about a westerner who serve as a doctor in Laos. After accidentaly killing an Australian tourist while trying to protect a local girl he's getting into deep trouble. The viewer is following the protagonist in his struggle to escape from Laos evading the police forces. In that motive you get a very solid thriller that's going to keep you in a constant anxiety, while the main character is going through serious hardship. He's going to be on the edge throughout the whole movie and you're going to be so too. Give it a shot, it's worth it.
