What a dog life
8 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Your wife left you, you lost your job, your home, you hesitate to commit suicide? One advice, don't watch this film. It's a pretty good and efficient movie, even with a bit of dark humor, but it also can be devastating for some people in mental, psychological distress. That depends of how you watch this film. The topic has already been told in the plot line. So I won't repeat it. Now that's up to you folks. It's not a comedy, damn no. Nor a drama, though it should be...I don't know.
