A great audiovisual and surrealistic experience.
8 March 2019 | by costa-83836See all my reviews

Without knowing what I got into, I bought a last minute ticket to see manta ray at the international film festival in Rotterdam. I was pleasently surprised by this movie because I didn't know what to expect.

The movie is visually stunning and has a great 'flow' to it. Although it is a slow movie I never found it dull. The way the director makes the Thai city come to life was a real pleasure. I don't want to spoil anything about the plot so I won't. But the only thing I will say about it, is that I feel the movie lacked substance. Nevertheless I throroughly enjoyed myself and I would recommend this movie to people who like surrealistic experiences.

At the moment I rate it at 7/10 but it;s more like a 7.5/10
