Storyline

Janus, who has just been discharged from a psychiatric ward, is armed with a single mission. He must find Amina, his friend from high school - no matter the cost. The many letters he received from Amina while he was hospitalised gave Janus hope and a belief in the future. But suddenly, the vital lifeline was broken and the letters ceased coming. Janus is convinced that something bad has happened to Amina and begins putting together the numerous pieces of the jigsaw puzzle. His search for the truth leads Janus on a dangerous detective journey through the dark streets of big city where everyone he comes into contact and who knows Amina seems to be hiding something.

Week start gets better
9 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

The first half an hour or so does not really work, IMHO {Line break} Perhaps it starts too close to the book it is based upon (that I have not read) ? {Line break} But it gets better and portraits the troubles of a deeply tormented mind through a somewhat violent story. {Line break} I think it does a fairly good job overall, so the rating reflects the average. And perhaps I have been a bit too kind as the bad part is in the beginning and not so present when you leave the theatre...
