CGiii Comment

Fassbiner puts a little warmth into a cold place.

The tableaux and awkward acting simply adds to the eccentricity...but, there is a savage truth, straightforward...no mincing of words.

It's humanity - at its bleakest and the heartwarming potential it has...

Stylised and smart. Very smart.
