One thought on “Trashbag

  1. A wonderful way of highlighting the often dystopian and emotionless way children are adopted in some countries. The parade/pageant scene is unsettling as the children are paraded as if commodities, and executed well by the filmmaker. The film as a whole was enjoyable and had a coherent and consistent atmosphere throughout.
