Very interesting film
25 August 2003 | by (Cambridge) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on a plane and i thought it was going to be a crap movie, but it wasnt. It´s a very interesting film about how sometimes it´s better to bury the past and not try to open some past doors. It´s not the perfect movie but yes a nice one. If you like poetry, you will like it.
