The film is a bit confusing where the story details in the converstation are incomplete. Making the storyline difficult to understand makes the audience have to think when watching this film. On the other side the camera angle and view are very epic, with a smooth transtition that akes it comfortable in the eyes, but in term of contrast makes color unnatural. Fortunately the actor played very well to cover up disability.
You must think twice if you want to watch this movie when you’re bored.
