One of a kind cinematic experience
4 January 2020 | by its-me6611See all my reviews

9/10

Plot: A buffalo escapes from a butcher and all the villagers band together to hunt it.

I liked the trailer. Though the film turned out to be different than what I expected from the trailer. I still liked the film. I was hooked from the first scene, I did not know what was going on or how it will turn out but the making is so good that I was glued to my seat. The cinematography is out of this world. The editor has done an amazing job. The film just flows. The pacing is perfect. The background music is oddly perfect. The atmosphere created by the film maker sucked me in. It is an extremely rewarding experience. My heart beat raised in some scenes as if I was there. The rawness is sometime hard to watch.

There seems to be a meaning behind the film which I did not quite get. The beast nature of human is pointed out but there are few things that is still making me ponder. I liked the film just fine without getting too deep into the meaning behind it. I don't think I have seen a film like this before. It is an innovative, beautiful, raw, thrilling and thought provoking film.
