Creative staging & direction, Tepid storytelling, Indulgent

Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if You want to hear some man's vaguely boring, indulgent life story while watching 4 modern dancers move slowly around the room for 90 minutes

Don't see it if You don't like 1-man shows; if you don't care know the main actor personally; if you don't know the history of La Mama; if you need any plot
