I just returned from the screening of the movie at the Berlinale. I am really impressed and it is really hard to find words to describe my emotions. Probably I'll go to watch it once again tomorrow. But I should say that "La Masseria delle allodole" is the movie that makes you not only think, but also speak and even cry. Think about life, death, love, friendship, human cruelty and speak about history. Like Tavianis have spoken about it. No, I am too emotional. OK, just watch it. And I think you'll feel the same, or may be different, but YOU FEEL. After the presentation one of the actors sad, that he had seen a lot of people crying during the screening. "Crying is not enough, we have to speak" he sad. Speak about Armenian Genoside, Darfour and other tragedies, which some used to keep their mouths closed, or even deny.
