Fantastic movie that I would recommend to everyone. Best usage of subtle symbolism and imagery since "Blue Is The Warmest Color"(directed by Abdellatif Kechiche). Uses lightness and darkness to set up scenes and doesn't force hedonistic motifs onto the viewer but prefers to trust the viewer to come to it's own conclusions. Ending doesn't give any answers but leaves you with a sense of tragedy. Perfect movie to show the importance of opening and closing scenes and their symbiotic nature. Great acting by the two leads, with supporting characters holding their own as well. All in all, one of the most under rated movies of 2017 and deserving of an international audience.
