My opinion about the director’s work is positive, I think they have coped well. They chose a very good actor. There is nothing to say. I really liked it.
The actors have really played well all the scenes. With no fault. This allowed us to understand the film.
I think this is a movie to be seen, it is really well made, there’s good base and it’s a Swiss film!
The story makes us understand the need to confide in someone, although it is hard. When we entrust a person we can make a new start, we will again have confidence in us.
