"Everyone is an asshole" .. it seems that the sense of humanity had left the soul of every person who came across the journey of the intrepid Nori.
Absolutely stunning images and photography, without mentioning the rare but yet extremely accurate musical incisions which accentuate the constant tension in the movie.
Visar Morina impose us a "normative" vision of what should be unacceptable. Superbe
A boy deathly afraid of being abandoned, finds a way to travel to Germany to find his father after his illegal emigration. What could have been an interesting take on the refugee issue in Europe instead falls flat due to the obnoxious behaviour /performance of its child lead that the audience will be hard pressed to emphasize with let alone like. Quite a slog to get through despite some affecting scenes.
