User Reviews

 
Slow moving but entertaining
7 May 2020 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This is a very slow moving film that could have been shortened significantly and lost nothing by so doing. It follows the paths of Sarah and Saleem, people on different sides of a cultural and political divide, who have an affair and the consequences that follow. It's not well edited and sometimes the scenes offer little in the way of continuity. The ending is a bit silly and the time wasted in other scenes could have been used to figure out and present a better ending.
