sad and quiet movie about death illness and human love
11 April 2004 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This is very sad movie that you have to see in a appropriate time of the day. This is very quiet film although its story is about death and illness. But nevertheless, it is full with love and soft human feelings that are seem to be the remedy for all the bitterness and problems of the humanity everywhere. Russian immigrant come to a end his life in a hostel and met there an art teacher who help to the crew, in the house, to treat the patients.She,also,has her own private problems' after her husband died in Paris. The strong feeling you get after the sad end of this little movie is what one of the old lady explain her nephew: "the death is not an ending, but like a little ship that going far away. you never see the ship again but you know she is there".
