… in 5 words:

Too long or too short?

 

… in 25 words:

Overall it left me feeling a little confused and underwhelmed. Was something lost in translation? To me, not much happened and what did felt undeveloped.

 

… in 50 words:

What is it about? Cynophboia? Homohpobia? Does the writer even know? If the film was slightly longer and developed, or shorter and more focused it would have worked. At this length, its left until the final scene for things to start making sense but not fully, and far too late.
