User Reviews

Denis Villeneuve sends his regards
7 May 2020 | by GezehSee all my reviews

"Frieda - Coming Home" is a film that - positively - took a lot of nerve out of me. I have seldom seen such an exciting film that keeps me on my toes the whole time in a way that is unfortunately unusual by now. I still have to think about it three days later, so the story touched me that I write an opinion here for the first time. Moreover, it's similar to Denis Villeneuve's films from mood and look, and I love them. What also excited me is the subject, which makes you think about it. Really a foreign film that is worth watching!
