Tango on the Balcony
• "Tango on the Balcony is one of, if not THE BEST, portrayals of PTSD I’ve seen in film or television. As a viewer, you feel the constant tension and readiness to react that the character is experiencing throughout the entire film. On top of that, you experience his self-doubt about the things he did during the war, and watch as he tries to find a way to cope with a truth he doesn’t want to face.” - HORRORGEEK LIFE
