Brilliant movie
17 June 2019 | by dibeyenduSee all my reviews

What a brilliant little movie. The surprise twist at the end is Hitchcock-esque! Everything that seemed odd suddenly becomes clear. Great performance from the young lead. Watched this in a package along with the several other short films from across the world at Kashish Queer Film Festival in Mumbai, India and it was one of my favorites.
