What are people saying?

  • Korial's rating of the film A Fish Out of Water

    The underlying idea - a boy claims to remember his previous life - opens up a series of intriguing possibilities: mystery, eerie atmospheres, and profound reflections on Existence. None of this happens. Instead, the film lazily collapses on a already-seen, half-baked, plot about family drama (played by mediocre actors). The supernatural elements depletes and the film ultimately tastes like an unripe, sour, fruit.
