One of the most passionate relationship dramas committed to screen! The entire movie feels like an act of violence. The way its functions, the consequences, and the way we reconcile violence is not too un similar the way passionate relationships are.
“Kennen Sie die Band The The?… Der Der? Die Die? Das Das?” (womp womp). Grace! Like some updated iteration of Fear Eats the Soul crossed with the way I lived in my 20s.
