tv predictable movie
14 April 2019 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

This movie reminds me to the A Christie´s series from couple of decades ago; the same type of structure, music, related stuff; even the silly and cute secretary is there... The camera work is evident; the panning expected. Light is good but TV quality no 35mm of course.

And the finish...so Japanese.

I put 4 stars due to the production costs; nice exteriors, houses decoration and a bit of acting, but better to avoid it
