Exaggerated and Tedious
8 March 2019 | by ParisImpressionH-Y-See all my reviews

Most of the film's length is just a long, tedious, and very fast conversation. The rest of the space is also filled with a deliberate performance. The relationship between the characters is not very clear. The character's behavior is exaggerated and extreme. Although it is a color film, I don't feel the existence of color.
