Emotions vs Intelligence
3 April 2018 | by tomsawyer-01858See all my reviews

Quite a nice movie this was.

Good acting, specially from the main actors. The girl, yes, the more you act cold, the more vulnerable you are inside.

This is a movie without action, pace, change of location, change of story. It's close to Morgan, but does not take its action path.

It could be played in a theatre. It kept me interested from start to end.

Not that it was brilliantly clever, as the girl was, it has its clichés of stereotype characters, but clever enough not try to tackle my intelligence.

So if you are a person of self-inspection, you will enjoy this movie.
