Brilliant
16 September 2019 | by andrebatucadabsbSee all my reviews

Humor, drama, good acting and a nice ending. For me, when a movie hits a high score on this items, i give 10 with no problem! Is not about to compare with other movies, instead, the movie reaches 10 in what it sets out to do. Relax and enjoy it!
