Not bad but very disappointing
17 January 2019 | by yongfilmcriticSee all my reviews

I missed girl in Cannes where everyone was talking about. Finally watched the film which I was very disappointed. it was not bad but certainly bloated by everyone. Transgender or not it is ultimately a meager story and a little Boring and soulless.
