Very deep film
19 January 2018 | by gislithorSee all my reviews

This movie is very deep, its not an action film. Its a film that takes you on a trip of understanding. Its explains what it is to be different, what it is not to be accepted for what you are, or for you to expect not to be accepted, it shows a lot of hurt and pain. Also happiness and joy. The fact that it is staged in simple surroundings makes it easier to get the message across, its quite easy to understand. This is a film that will leave you a better person after, if you watch it without prejudice.

I can not understand how people can relate this film to sex, I find that rather disturbing, and it isn't really that shallow, although you might be able to find people that are and I really hope for their own sake that that is the reason.

The man without a face was a film that did something similar, but from a different angle. I think this film is a masterpiece.
