Should have been a short movie
4 April 2020 | by mrzimpasuljSee all my reviews

The story revolves around a mysterious figure that can grant any wish, and numerous people that are orbiting around him, intertwined by their own desires and Holy Grail agendas.

Sadly, you can figure out almost every character in the movie in about 15-20 minutes, making the rest of it's length redundant. If this was a short movie, it could have been interesting, but with this running time, it quickly becomes repetitive, predictable and it loses its pace; which is even more problematic considering that "The Place" is set in (no pun intended) only one place - a coffee shop named "The Place." This "mono-territory" would have been a less of a drag in a short feature; this way, it only slows it down even more.
