Storyline

The most overrated movie of the year
2 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The screenplay, editing, directing, cinematography, and production design of the movie "I can speak" are all pretty straightforward, and there is really nothing special. It simply does not worth the overwhelming acclaim it receives. I cannot say it's a bad movie, but definitely a boring movie.
