Extremely unique, but not very interesting
9 December 2019 | by sophiarodriguez-86742See all my reviews

It is extremely different movie, I never have seen something similar. It is a powerful movie, but not extremely interesting. I also feel that the premise is not always clear. Yet, my friends loved this movie.
