This movie is special.
13 April 2018 | by jansuingSee all my reviews

This movie came at the right time in my life. I guess it's safe to say that this little piece of insightful cinema saved me.

But not only does this film effectively inspire hope to those who despair due to the way the prevailing economic system treats its subjects, it is also a sobering critique of capitalism, how it drives people to destroy each other due to competition, and how it ultimately makes those who cannot conform to the values and demands of capitalism feel useless and empty.

This movie has a special place in my heart. Highly recommended.
