Only The Animals – Seules les bêtes movie:- {Spoilers Free} review

This French film is a poignant story of our era, wherein almost all of us lead a double life – private life and public life. However, I believe that disclosing the plotlines of these complex, diverse, gripping and dramatic story ideas would be wrong. It is an engrossing suspenseful tale about the interconnected lives of people living in two different continents – Europe and Africa. You can watch this movie to check out its powerful storytelling backed by great acting by the ensemble cast.
