Beautiful visually and incredible storytelling
22 January 2021 | by crc-92589See all my reviews

In a world of remakes and predictable storylines cheesy premises spewing out from Hollywood. This movie is pure original art from a novel that opens your mind to the things you have never known before. Take in the breathtaking scenery and the absolutely beautiful performances . Please watch if you can and enjoy.
