Surprisingly nice movie.
25 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

A man understands that the purpose of the struggle for a better life is not just the money. He understands communication is the most important thing. In that case he communicates in depth with a deaf and dumb girl.

And the beginning I thought it is going too slowly but later I realised that the longer shots work on my emotions. The emotion of the film keeps me long after I left the cinema. Georges Corraface and Valeria Golino are fantastic. The director have done great job. In my opinion the film is a masterpiece.

I recommend this movie to anyone who appreciates a well-told stories in movies that excite.
