Seen at Berlin Film Festival.
Very much a film of two halves. The first half being one that shows both the trials and tribulations, and the lengths a mother goes to to help her child.
This is where the film is at it's best, it has drive, it has a purpose, and it gets to explore a character.
Fast forward to the second half and any sense of focus goes out of the window. At first I felt like the film was winding down to a conclusion and didn't quite know how to end. As it turned out there was another 40 minutes of this feeling. It's like it didn't have a focus any more, there was nothing to aim…
