    March Around the World '21: film #2

    Changed my Danish pick when this came available, I can always watch Nymphomaniac....right?

    Bleak, political, competently made and acted out, but to me this is severely lacking tension.

    I don't know excactly what I expected, I tried to go in knowing as little as possible, but I definitely didn't expect anything close to what I got.
