Ambitious, Quirky, Ultra loud, Dizzying, Confusing

See it if There is an enormous amount of sensory overload. There are flashing and ultra violet lights, there are loud electronic noises.

Don't see it if You are looking for a sweet story to be part of, this is definitely not sweet ! It is frightening and weirdly disconcerting. I don’t recomme
