After seeing movie I have to say this
30 October 2016 | by huupolliSee all my reviews

I heard that the producer of this film says, that it is like French new wave but in Finland. I laughed so hard when I heard that. Has he even seen the films of French new wave? I doubt that because this film is not that good, not in a thousand years. This was a movie that anybody could have made. There was no originality, no bravery, no risk had been made. This movies is a movie that you forget in a week at most. I saw it last night and I can't remember anything specific thing because there were nothing interesting. It was just talking heads, that's it.

If you look that how people have rated this movie in this platform, 16 people have rated this movie 10/10. That's insane. That means that 16 people thinks this movie is best movie ever been made. But probably 16 beings doesn't remember anything about this movie in a next month.
