Adorable film
16 October 2018 | by rolandcatSee all my reviews

This film is beautiful in so many ways.

Well acted and shows what happens when you lose a partner and how crazy you can become.

When he meets and has a friendship with the migrant worker it's so real. He doesn't want a Grindr hook up he wants a hug. A human that cares for him.

What I like about this film also is it's not all about being gay. The gay thing is just a trait. The friendship relationship with the married man is sweet and believable.

Some good laughs . A great film. Original.

Wonderful. Couldn't better it. Hence a ten.
