Boring movie
27 October 2016 | by kodinkoneSee all my reviews

(I'm sorry for my bad English) I can describe this movie in one sentence: This a movie which doesn't take any risks. It was really boring cinematicly and story... well, nothing special. This movie is not original in any way. It's a movie for womens.

Is that drama that we see the mother crying over her child and then we see that the child is doing alright. Is that dramatic in any way? I didn't cry nor laugh. It was just weird.'And when the mother cries to her child, it's has shown as a comic relief like what is this?? Why director wants to make sad things funny but when he want's to make people cry, there is nothing for cry about because the child is doing fine.

There is one thing that I like this movie and that is that the schizophrenia was showed really mature way.

It was not a bad movie but me, person who watches over 200 movies in a year, it was not speciall in any way.
