Beautiful and relaxing places charged with a lot of emotional sense. This story of friendship is as old as the time itself. But the composition of the characters are well-worked, exploring their own times at the movie. The lines of the script were not known by the actors before they played it, so, the dialogs are spontaneous and fresh, having many different colors.

Apparently, and old bridge blowed up seems to say NO. AS young as the director is, a good future seems to flash at the end of the tunnel.
