I think it's simpler than people thinks
25 July 2019 | by elgaboteSee all my reviews

Even more, simpler that I thought it would be! The story it's quite simple, really. The ending seems abrupt, but it's not really, by the last scene everything is solved... there's nothing to add. Or at least I don't need anything else to add. It's true, there are a few details that I don't know what they mean, and maybe I'm missing something and I didn't realise of something, but as I've understood it makes sense and there's not a lot more to add, even from those details "unsolved" for me. The cinematography is very good, everyone is very good on their roles, and it's a different take on a thematic seen many times before. Good movie. I wonder though what was those details... will update this review if I ever find out!
