CGiii Comment

Let's not beat about the bush...this is a scathing attack on the Russian exodus that has flooded many a coastal resort.

Decadence, corruption and trophy wives are all in the firing's grotesque to watch.

It's an oddly framed film...from its unexplained beginning to its very subdued ending...Alexandra Matheou has certainly voiced her opinion...from a very different perspective.
