Slow moving rubbish
25 August 2020 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

The only positive this film had was the beautiful natural landscape which made for gorgeous and breathtaking cinematography. Other than that, it moves at the pace of molasses trying to flow uphill, with minimal dialog that is very banal. The story is told in a disjointed manner and relies mainly on people constantly staring into space. The message of how a culture, which has not embraced modern ideals, responds to homosexuality, does get across but there are better films that deal with this issue.
