29 April 2018 | SameirAli
| Honeymoon on Chesil Beach.
December 7, 2017. Gala Screening, 14th Dubai International Film Festival.

It was a great pleasure meeting the director in person and talk about his movie after the Gala Screening.

Set in the 60's, two young people are married, and having their honeymoon. They are both virgin. They know each other, and it was completely a planned and arranged marriage. yet, they are so nervous. Their stories are told in flash back that comes often, as their nervous honeymoon progress.

The frames were exceptionally good, especially in the outdoor. Hats-off to the cinematographer. The Chesil beach had a real classic touch.
