Story & Performance
18 October 2018 | by sidibeomarSee all my reviews

This story is beautiful and haunting. Told exquisitely with measure, poetry, and hyper realism. The fantastic performances all round deliver the story authentically. I love the way the film comes in heavy and then gives you space to breathe, comes in again. The pacing is incredible.

Ani Laurie is one fine filmmaker you need to see the film to believe it!
