User Reviews

Loneliness is palpable
21 January 2020 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells a man going through a very tough time. We only find out why in the middle of the film, and to me it is quite a shock. It makes me appraise the story in another light. His loneliness is palpable and well portrayed as well.
