    The last hour is something truly special: very hard to watch and at the same time brilliantly fascinating. There is only one way to interpret all this , mothers! metaphors are well thought out and executed but also not very subtle.

    Way too many close ups tho..

Changing the manipulitive and intelligent light into a damn fool, probably bothered…
