Well Made, but I feel this doesn't get deep enough
14 December 2020 | by erangordon1998See all my reviews

The shots are like works of art, really beautiful and expressive. My problem was that the main character is portrayed like you obeserve him, and its a bit hard to identify with him, even tho you understand why he does what he does. also the acting wasn't good enough for me to really get in touch with the characters, and the arty shots sometimes make you feel like you watch a movie, so you can't really identify with them. good foreign debut overall.
