ZombAid’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Secret is in the Sweaters
A wonderful dire and hopeless scenario where love is a commodity and the only reason not to give up. The own interest and needs are still going strong and securing the own livelihood is the only thing that matters.
Happiness for every price, even if everyone else has to suffer for it.
It really is fascinating what a film-like presentation an Alexa Mini can churn out these days, simulating a 35mm look that really is captivating. Paired with the dirty sets and loose sweaters, with the amorous glances and painful tears it shows a relationship that is pretty uncommon in a hopeless world where a warm place to lay down is something desired by everyone and seldom achieved by anyone.
