LUV this dark comedy!
3 March 2019 | by briefexistanceSee all my reviews

Amazing. In times dissatisfying, others exaggerated and always, cringy. I know so many humans who feed from sadness and compassion. This is, obviously, an extreme example, and I absolutely loved it. It's extremely genius. I mean, how easy was to produce, direct and make a story like this one? This strange. I'm glad someone took the risk.

I laughed so many times with this contemporary-anthropological-maniac-horror story. Just genius. I wish this Greek weird wave thing produces more of this!
