Sensitive

I’ve heard of Klinefelter’s Syndrome in several Biology courses but I’ve never seen a film that focuses on the condition.

The starting titles are very promising, and so is the music and the initial mood of the movie. But, when you see what's the patht that she takes for the storytelling, you might, ok I started to wonder how this was going to end. And... I was a bit disappointed. The ultimate point of the movie, is wether sh...
