Artsy. Moving. Exceptional.
3 May 2019 | by ramair350See all my reviews

I was incredibly fortunate to get to view this film at a special screening in Austin, Texas. I have nothing to do with the film or production, by the way. Yes, it is art film, so don't go in expecting to see an Avengers movie. But make no mistake, while it is far from an action movie, I was riveted to the screen throughout the entirety of the film. It is beautiful to look at, and just makes you FEEL what you are seeing on the screen. And it has an amazing, cohesive story (which often falls short in art films). The cast is incredible as well. In summary, this is an exceptional film, and an exceptional piece of art - go see it!
