The Charmer is a powerful piece of cinema!
30 July 2018 | by alysonburston-36564See all my reviews

I saw this movie at Dubai Film Festival last year. It got a lot of buzz from the press and audience and all of the screenings where sold out. I managed to get a ticket and have to agree with all the positive reviews. This is a powerful piece of cinema! Intense and touching with great cinematography! I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie! The acting is excellent and the story kept surprising me until the very end! I highly recommend this movie!
