Beautiful and unexpected portrayal of an assassin
15 February 2017 | by Lenaye999See all my reviews

I was lucky to catch this film at Berlinale Film Festival and when the film ended, there was a sudden eruption of applause that went on for about a minute. Half the crowd stayed behind until the credits rolled and again another round of applause when the final curtain came down. It was THAT good.

The film was shocking at times of the brutality, heart warming, some really laugh-out loud moments mixed with gut wrenching sadness. All 3 leads playing Long, Jun and Lily were excellent in their portrayal of the characters and you do feel for each of their struggles.

When a movie really touches you it stays in your mind and I'm still thinking about the film even now after I saw the movie several days ago.
