User Reviews

Boring despite the beautiful scenery
26 July 2019 | by cyndyaSee all my reviews

Three of us saw this film as part of the SF Jewish Film Festival and we all found it tedious with a thoroughly unsympathetic main character. Too many scenes of meaningful looks off into the distance and what was the significance of all those scenes where the character lit each others cigarettes?
