Deadpan humour at its best!
19 September 2019 | by kikikontikiSee all my reviews

Enjoyed the movie throughout. The search for connection was very well captured in all three characters! And the ridiculous situations the characters (especially Mina) find themselves in are hilarious. Truly fresh and original.
