Informative
28 November 2019 | by ilovefoodcomaSee all my reviews

It is great to hear the details of this case from the victims' side other than from the media. Very informative and good flow of the script. Even though it is over 2 hours movie but didn't feel any scene unnecessary. Definitely great directing.
