a film about communism, love, moral rectitude, and, in a measure, about faith. a common fact in a wine factory. and a decision who reveals the innocence of a young man. a love story more fragile than a spider web.and a time. concentric circles by a great director who create not only realistic portrait of society, ironic picture of a system but use the most delicate tools for build the atmosphere, the tension between characters, the essence of Nico gestures. a beautiful movie for its splendid grace. a grace who is just part of admirable force. the monastery image as remember of real certitude, the fall of leaves and beginning of maturity, the amusing scenes and the wise manner to give to each scene its nimbus. that is all. it is a not small error to not see it. maybe, only to understand a little part from a season from East history.
