Verdict on Cici
Cici is a drama about family and how coming back together can change how everything is seen. It puts a big focus on how the family are dealing with their loss. This takes us down a path to see how each member has moved on with their life and not everything has gone to plan.
This reunion story shows the importance of family and, most importantly, friendships in life. It shows how people can have different lives than expected but will always remember their time together. To tell the story, the movie itself is longer than it needs to be. It could have easily been trimmed down to bring the biggest impact in the story. Overall, it has a big message and gets it over well enough without being anything we haven’t seen before.
Where to Watch: Cici is available to watch on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Cici is a nice drama about a family coming together.
