Intriguing But Has Its Issues
3 May 2019 | by larrys3See all my reviews

This movie, set in Denmark, by Iranian director Milad Alami who is making his feature film debut opens with a quite shocking scene. It had enough intrigue and mystery to keep me guessing to the end. But I felt it was somewhat marred by jumping, at times, from one scene to another without explanation, as well as an overabundance of explicit lovemaking scenes which become tedious. The acting is first rate, and Alami's capturing of the feel of the Iranian community in Denmark is perfection.

Overall, this is a movie that kept me engaged till its conclusion, but unfortunately as mentioned, it does get somewhat disjointed.
