Double Interest
8 January 2018 | by jsdelaiglesiaSee all my reviews

As it happens, I saw this film during a +14 hour flight from Taipeh to Frankfurt. It has, for me, the double interest of the perfectly international family relation between a daughter, her mother and the rest of the family. Family secrets. Family lies. But it has, for me as a european, the extreme interest of understanding and watching a normal family in a normal home in current Asia, nd the way interaction in this enviroment exists. Enjoyed it.
