1 August 2018 | by sailorpapaSee all my reviews

This movie is overall not bad. I didn't yawns. It's around 2 hours long. but the first hour and the next hour of duration is totally different.

Isabél Zuaa (Clara) is a good actress. Don't know why when the second hour of it that she becames the wolfchild's mother, she really looks like young Whitney Hoston. Marjorie Estiano (Ana) also great as well.

If this movie plans to do a remake version, I suggested Danai Gurira plays Clara and Kristen Wiig plays Ana.

Mainly I think the director is want to showing the strong message around the lesbian and family, but with surreal elements. you're looking for some kind of horror like "Let the right one in" (2008) or "Orphan" (2009), Or...if you're not enough of "The Wolverine" (2013) even "Logan" (2017) I guess this must be your new tiny cup of tea.
