Excellent and really outstanding!
27 February 2017 | by (Budapest) – See all my reviews

I am sure this is not the easiest movie for many,but I find it brutally expressive, overwhelming and especially original. I don't know the fancy words for a review but I can tell you, most of the movie I will probably remember for a very, very long time.

I love the very Eastern European picture and most of the characters - the play of the school director is so powerful that she is almost iconic.

This is pure realistic art against the grain, shallow and mediocre entertainment going on in cinemas.
