Even Nikolaj couldn't save this one
20 July 2020 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Decent directing, excellent cinematography, but the writing needed more "oomph" and a more cohesive plot with less plot holes and technical issues. A good watch, but nothing spectacular. Would've been better as a short film, as the 93 min runtime with the slow pacing made this film feel much longer.
