This movie is like a dream!
2 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

You watch this movie as a dream. I didn't have the privilege yet to see ''Mayrig'' the prologue if you want, but this movie. Wow! It's all I want to see from a movie. Humans relations were never the same again. Richard Berry has been cast as the main actor and the son of Omar Sharif and Claudia Cardinale who played their roles in such a beautiful way, you won't believe it. It's not a movie, it's a true story. Something, the direction and author by the way, really lived. This movie tell you the story you to hear. You will laugh, you will cry, you will be happy, you will be unhappy... and it goes on and on. This movie is 130 minutes of pure satisfaction. Even in my dreams, I never had the privilege to feel such a beautiful dream. The cast has been choose carefully as the actors done probably the best acting they ever done!!
