To show a small mistake in a Parallel Mothers movie, making a two-hour film is a lot of time, in today’s movies a lot of suspense, mystery and action is put in a one and a half-hour film, but to show a small concept. For this, if a two-hour film is made, it will bore people.

The story of Parallel Mothers is good, but it is shown quite slow, this film has light emotional scenes, nothing else, no action, no mystery, and no dramatic scene in the film, An attempt has been made to connect two different stories in Parallel Mothers, but it does not harmonize till the end, two completely different stories are shown in one film, which makes the film longer and does not make any sense Comes out.

I watched the full Parallel Mothers movie and decided it doesn’t belong in that category at all, that I recommend you, because wasting two hours watching a small mistake and a few emotional scenes would be too much, I would not recommend at all to watch this movie
