Close to the edge
22 April 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

It is a mad world ... and for some it is even madder. Some people seem not to be able to catch a break. This movie is about outsiders who have issues to stay sane. And who can blame them? If you are into dramas and like slow paced genuinely story telling with some good acting to boast with too, look no further. While this is not for everyone, those who are into it, will love the reality of it all, the gravitas the movie bathes in.

Again you may feel this isn't something worth watching and that is ok. If you'd rather watch something that is quite far away from reality that is more than fine. Just don't blame this movie for being the opposite. If this isn't your kind of deal, just don't watch it.
