Asia (2020) NYJFF 2021
Asia is more like Vika's sister than her mother. They act and behave more like teenagers than parent and child. However when Vika's illness worsens Asia will have to step up.
Good by by the numbers tragic drama hits all the expected notes. While extremely well acted and well made the film really doesn't do much more than expected with some of the turns foreshadowed well in advance or in the promotional material.
Not bad but Nothing special.
