Powerful last scene | Revealing new depths of human complexity | Love vs. Love
13 November 2015 | by wwishesSee all my reviews

You know.. some people like movies for their plot, others for whatever similarities they find in them. But this one is great for it's last scene alone. The movie minus the last scene is alright, but it's the ending that paints a never-seen-before emotional picture that not many movies can show. That way I'd even compare it to a peace of art. Can't really describe it, but by watching it I feel more human. Not many movies can do that, not many.

This movie is a slow trip, but in the end it might make you experience something, something indescribable, yet very human. If you want to be taught by this movie, and feel the experience, then you will - in a way that is completely new and..beautiful.
