Very good European production
3 November 2019 | by crayonbic-08036See all my reviews

Sorry i don't speak English. But this serie, is very interesting. I prefere minimalist SF than big SF with explosion of visual effect. The serie is mysterious and Emily is a great protagonist. The Musical ambiance is good. The context of the film is good. It's interesting adaptation.
