24 March 2019 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of an American photographer, whose Belgian husband kills himself with a gun. She struggles to find out why he kills himself.

The story could have been interesting, but the pace is super super slow. It moves so slowly that even potentially adrenaline filled scenes become boring. The storytelling doesn't make you want to find out what is happening, and doesn't captivate the viewers. It is a pity, because it has good production, but the story isn't told well.
