      Audience Member The whole story concept is lovely I liked the idea , unfortunately it lacked to keep my attention or follow through the story in the right way, the start was very dark dreary music just seemed to drone on every scene that at points wasn't needed, the lighting and sound in multiple scenes didn't seem to match up, such as a wide angle view of a room would be warmly lit, but then there was close ups that were then under a very blue and dark lighting which didn't match up or make sense, same with sound one minute it's loud then it's quiet or echoing be it music or actors speaking, it declined more and more as the movie went on I hate to criticise acting but some characters that were not main characters it was almost pantomime like there would be some up beat music coming in and out of parts of the movie that seemed a more serious part but then the music would blare in and drone out overall didn't make sense and got worse the more it went on I'm not sure I can survive the last 24 minutes I've made it this far Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie, good job!
