Amazing!
27 December 2018 | by baronforslund-196-155954See all my reviews

Didn't know anything about the movie, and I was extremely surprised to find such a hidden gem! The actors are unknown to me, but they are certainly first class! Incredible acting from everyone, especially the main character and his father.

I've seen too many movies in my life, and movies like The Comet are rare!!!

I wouöd recommend this to basically everyone!
