| Dark and grim and intelligent.
This is very grim, we see lives of poverty and desperation and brutality.

There acting is good, everyone delivers from Srodon as a likable coward to the bullying police officers.

The pace is quite slow, there is a lot of build up since both plot threads are worked out in parallel and we have to wait until both are ready before the pace can increase, this made it hard to watch in the beginning but it's worth persisting.

Both threads are dark and have a few twists.

There is a bit of humour, some drunken humour in the past thread and some more gallows humour in the current time thread.

The ending is very dark and surprising, and has a couple of extra twists.
