    ★★★

    I still like this movie. It has a special place in my heart.

    ★★★★

    Wow, wow, wow! That was intense. Filmmaking in its purest form. Staged and shot masterfully!

    ‪My favourite film this year so far! Watch it when you get the chance! Never saw anything quite like it. Can‘t wait to watch it again!


    Nachtrag auf Deutsch: Die deutsche Synchro ist sehr gelungen, wie ich finde. Dieses Meisterwerk ist also auch synchronisiert absolut sehenswert!
