Brutal and brilliant.
24 June 2020 | by samshvjiSee all my reviews

This film is quite simply perfection. Nuanced, complex characters and a story that will just keep you watching till the very end. One of those films that start out simple and unassuming and keep getting more and more baffling. By the end you're so deeply involved in these characters that their motivations and confusions make you desperately want things to work out between them. And then the enditng basically just rips your heart out and then it's impossible to get into anything else.
