MNM couldn't build anything out and out. Excluding the part of having taken a slightly different issue, there was no different work done, rather a letdown. The Direction and Screenplay, both suffered of amateurish, incapable trail that couldn't hold. The Actress has the capacity to play roles of suc... (more)
