User Reviews

In the medium of dance
13 April 2020 | by haywardjustineSee all my reviews

Done possibly with cutaways presenting ideas in the medium dance. So much so that I was expecting it to be something it wasn't at all. The beautiful cinematography saved a somewhat over saturated experience of art vs story. There is a story there but you'll have to pick amongst the beauty shots to find it.
