Twoo stories
19 July 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A film about taste of life. About cruel innocence and search of yourself, a splendid Pirandello- Taviani cocktail and description of the essence of gestures.

A delicate pledge for the discover of world. Victims and games. Expectation and subtle fear. And ambiguous definitions of life.

The first part is the story of a poor man and his strange cruelty. About images of a gray existence, small frustrations and desire to be more than a shadow. A strange murder and the bricks of life are only gloomy dust. But the desires are more than dreams of fictions.

The second story is picture of the life's waves. A kidnapping in two different eras. A priest and a boy. And the same death. It is a tale about fly, art, knowledge and its ashes. Exploration of basic errors and ambiguous gestures. End of innocence and forms of interior lies. Limits of game and voice of its blood.
