Excellent Movie
16 February 2020 | by therightpmSee all my reviews

War of any kind remains, and will always remain brutal. Depicting it here in this film is no different. However, the cinematography, camera movements, style of the film, actors, and story is strong and should be commended to all those that participated in its making. The only thing that held me back from giving the film a 10 rating is that the subtitles often disappear rapidly, but it's not enough to hide the story because of strong inferences through strong and understandable visuals... Well done!!!
