[HanCinema"s Film Review] "The Tower"

[HanCinema"s Film Review] "The Tower"

[HanCinema"s Film Review] "Clash of the Families"

The characters of this ill-fated couple as well as their actors being so adorable together and having such chemistry is definitely the best starting point for this romance.

And it is this humor created by the creators and cast that really makes the movie special. There is romance here, but “Clash of the Families” is above all a family comedy film. There is plenty of outrageous comedy, there are funny dialogues and insane situations, there are some twists and secrets that just add to the whole thing and the cast makes every scene, from the slowest to the most chaotic very entertaining. ...
