      Mx T It is a neat but quite chaotic film. It's based on a true story but unlike other similar historical movies, there is no narrator who explains some bits of the happening. Therefore there are scenes that are quite difficult to understand and leave you wondering. Also in some scenes where psychological illnesses are portrayed the acting is not correspond with the symptoms of the illness. Still it was enjoyable and mostly historically accurate. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
