This excellent well directed film...
19 July 1999 | by (Montreal,Quebec) – See all my reviews

This excellent well directed film, with a magnificient cinematography, gave me the same feelings of the first view of Fellini's Strada. The script is really a masterpiece of the use of flashback, the direction of actors is wonderful. But most of all still the poetry that radiate from it.
