He asks the driver to stop, gets down, walks around the car and, on the left side, looks again towards the Pavillion (that should have been on the right side) See more »

striking softly
20 July 2001 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

the last scene was the key to enter the whole fact of the film. Two brothers in 2 fronts against eachother, but the brother from US holds his hands up to show he is defeated by the other brother. But the film tells us why it shows us these brothers story: FILM...which makes people eternal on the celluloids. It shows us people in different centuries who worked on that church but the only ones whom we know are these brothers, because they curved themselves on the film which was in a camera around. Wow, the Film was softly striking... I wanted not to watch at first, but the first scene grabbed my heart and make me stay to watch it completely...
