Silly and bloody fantasy
23 August 2020 | by shibollethSee all my reviews

There's something about those beutiful Asian ladies that make me like films with them. Even if they have just a little substance like this one. Yes, it's a bit of weird film, but there's something about women that can't adjust to this world. Just like men, they take their unusual path to get what they need and they never give up. And it becomes messy. And as this film says, you really want best for them just to realize that it can only work in film. Silly and bloody fantasy with a lot of sadness in the background ...
