solitude of a human being
29 September 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Accurate moviewatching can give you such strong pleasure that, if rightly chosen, the selected film can feed your mind for weeks.

On the other hand, if your choice fails, even thoroughly prepared by selecting critics and seeing previews, the frustration is so high that your first thought is never again a moviewatching, and how can the producer be punished!!

Well, none of this will happen seeeing "Man push Cart"! You are immediately seized by the deeply melancolic poetry of New Yorks' dark street through the night. You strongly feel the solitude and the constant sweetness of the hero, who seems totally submitted to fate whenever it hits him. Is it weakness , or is he very wise? The film, without naming them, speaks of all our present troubles: loss of social, religious and emotional identity> you will carry its delicate atmosphere and all the questions aroused for a long time.
