User Reviews

 
Acting very good, music too. Writing and the rest are not great.
5 August 2017 | by timmy27See all my reviews

The movie tries (or seems to try) to be deep and spiritual and in your face. But all I get from the conflict between those two caricatures is that they live in separate worlds and there's no hope and the emotional will always lose. This might be true, but the movie did not present it in a super entertaining, poetic or beautiful way.

All the actors are really really good and the awkwardness and shallowness and silliness and fakeness are portrayed well by them.
