"Strangely paced" - a review by pearly

Eve of Adha begins with the words "Everyone begins the morning by trading with his soul; he either wins it or ruins it". It is the story of an ordinary guy who works stacking shelves in a shop, but who keeps mysteriously bumping into the same girl, Eve, who turns out to be his neighbour, and who has some issues with her boyfriend.

I think the progression from beginning to end in this film was a bit strange. The beginning seemed to go for such a long time that the end had to be rushed; it meant that you didn't understand why the guy went so far with what he did.

While the film was an interesting journey, I wasn't that amazed by it.

pearly gives this movie 4 out of 10.
