In terms of negatives, there really are not many. They are 2 hours long and move slowly, this is a problem, the film does not catch the attention and it generates ups and downs that in turn turns out to be boring; But it develops efficiently and takes time to tell a well-developed story. Drama and conflict also increased during the second act.
