Audience Reviews for Leo


A Swedish film by Josef Fares (Jalla Jalla, Zozo, Kopps) about violence, revenge and its effects on the people you care about.

Leo is celebrating his birthday with friends and family. On his way home with his girlfriend, they get brutally assaulted by local gangsters.

"Leo" is a tragic story about a situation that can happen to anyone of us. The story brings nothing new to the genre but works well if you want to study the darker side of men.
