Family matters
10 January 2021 | by jamesjustice-92See all my reviews

A fine movie with a couple of really funny moments, relevant problems of self-identification, family issues and too much time devoted to a funeral, in my opinion. In general the movie feels like two movies stitched together harshly with only one plot line fully developed, the story of the main heroine (although in the first part of the movie she doesn't seem a main character). Acting overall is top notch and dialogue delivery is super real-like and despite at times unfitting soundtrack and too many close-up shots the movie pays too much attention to unnecessary dialogue and filler scenes and in the end it doesn't seem whole.
