amazing movie
15 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have just watched this movie today as part of London Film Festival. I loved it. It has such an incredible depth. Acting was amazing. It brought tears to my eyes, still I tremendously enjoyed it. Storytelling, depth of characters, score, locations everything beautifully fit with each other. I can't believe this is the first movie of the director. I am already a big fan and will look for more of his films in the future.
