      ahmed r I'll try first and then give my opinion almost it's an interesting movies Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Audience Member As usual, compelling, kinetic direction from Winterbottom, kind of a dull script. Though what he was thinking with those ugly filters I will never guess. Enjoyable, but not his best work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Brilliant, Great story,great performances,beautiful shots & ... The best I've seen by Winterbottom Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Gorgeous colours and a fascinating snapshot of 90's UK but falls a little short of great. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Impressive performances esp the Mute Boy. It's unfortunate that one can so easily see the story's twists and resolution so long before they come Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member butun karakterlerin karizma oldugu bir film...
