Are we actually surrounded by wolves all the time, having to stay vertical?
21 February 2017 | by milosxlazicSee all my reviews

This film has such a strong quirk to it's plot that's easy to put in opposition to quirks & troubles of your own life. And the very ending is when the entire film unwraps before your eyes again; then the quirky plot ceases to matter and the message is absorbed with such intensity that leaves one gasping. All this beside an almost constant visual stun.
