Much better than I expected
20 March 2019 | by semihyesilbursaSee all my reviews

I read the movie critics before I watch. By keeping the opinions in my mind, I watched it carefully, paid attention the sounds, emotions and psychological points of every scenes. I found it very successful, particularly the sensation to be transferred to the viewer. It is a great job. 👏👏👏👏👏
