Watching this movie is like reading a book!
4 June 2020 | by Zoetrope360See all my reviews

How far will you go to get the things you desire? Is there any limit at all?

Another creative writing from Paolo Genovese, the director of Perfect Strangers (Post #38 on Zoetrope360, Instagram). This movie is thought provoking as it explores the dark side of us, what are we willing to do to get the things we want.

The entire movie happens within a cafe, The Place. It's like reading a book, you visualize the things happening outside based on what people interact in the cafe.
