A good debut film worthy of its major awards at 5 minor film festivals
6 December 2019 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

A good tale on a good Latvian man as an allegorical sacrificial lamb, where he survives a no-win situation. This tale is juxtaposed on the contemporary Brexit/EU concerns and the lack of jobs throughout Europe. A film that pats Interpol on its back. A debut film worthy of its major wins at Brussels, Latvian, CinEast, Palic and Valletta film festivals.
