    It’s not a chahine film until:
    -Things get dark quickly then go back to normal after like 30minutes or less.
    -A good man gets assassinated for no reason and they blame an innocent guy for it.
    -A broke dude falls for rebellious playful girl.
    -Somebody goes insane for no reason.
    -Some workers unionize for some reason.
    -A woman gets stroke by the man she loves.


    But after all of this 2020 kind of chaos i did love the ending, it put a smile on my heart ❤️
