Travel the soul
6 May 1999 | by (Bologna, Italy) – See all my reviews

Only a long way can give the feeling to visit a new world. I think that the travel involve the soul to be different, at least you see different things. Micheal Cimino give us one way to look better into our souls, often too much worried about circumstantial things.
