Good movie ,, with a mysterious, somewhat distributing ending ..
8 September 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

First i gotta commend the cinematography ,, really impressive and montage just transition you into those miserable moments "gentle creature" experience ,, i mean her facial expressions were on point, for an amateur actress, and this is her first lead (big screen) ,, but it is apparent she is professional in "theater" ..

Anyway,, the story is emotional ,, and even though the script was not that strong, the events just keeps on pulling you to engage more and just try to find whether she gets to meet her husband or not.

final thought, recommended , but don't get bored from the first 20 minutes ,,, keep on watching ,.
