How Opposites Attract - Just Friends review by AA

Spoiler Alert
17/09/2019

A charming film centre around Joris and Yad's mutual attraction and the pit falls it brings with Yad also being the carer for Joris's grandmother and her desire to be the match maker!  Like all good love stories there are pit falls but the director does not allow it to wallow in self pity and the lovers supporting families issues also add to the feel and depth of the film.
