Skin of old fairy tale
5 January 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A movie about the nuances of love. About the voices of past. About legends, regrets, Java and France as fiction, about pain and solitude. A story of basic steps on the way of self- definition. Delicate, subtle and lyrical. A man and a woman. And theirs wolds empty, cruels and very large.A nostalgic page of self-definition and measure of dream's taste. Nothing new, nothing special. Words and mixture of images. Confesions and search. Discover of secrets and a land of desires. A volcano and a Paris in July 14. Exotic colors and games of feelings. As Proust's madlene, this film is trip on soul's corridors.Sad and melancholic, summer rain and window of a universe, passing and foot-step, grass smell and skin of old fairy tale.
