I saw this film , in gala opening of Cairo film festival , held in Egypt
Its a film about the suffering of a helpless young woman...how to survive in a country she knows nothing about ...illegaly working and living in it...
On so many levels the story line is moving...but my comment was why all the excessive details..and long scnes repeating the same thing over and ober
It was more of a documentary film....
My second comment was the overdose of blood ...it needed to tone down abit in this regard
Some people who watched it felt that the director did not utilse the story well...
Also the actress ( who won best actress in Cannes film festival 2018) had the same expresion almost all the film..not much of acting as much as the story its self that deserved a prize
