the Divine Justice
17 June 2018 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...seems that the critics do not have soul and idea of what s going on with this movie... Sometimes Life put you between a rock and a hard place; sometimes the system does not help with situations that you find in front of you; sometimes you are at the wrong spot in the wrong time.

What about Karma? What about to try to be a better person but somehow the planets do not align? How about to be an outsider in a society that does not open doors to you? How about to have been alone little by little? How about cruelty?

These and many more is what you ll find in this film; but all very smooth and with the right pace, not pretending to be more of what really is. Plus Blowing in the wind by Dylan as a lei motiv.

Hope you like it!
