good intentions
16 April 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Spanish Civil War. drama of a family. war of a woman in search of her husband. delicate - precise music. bricks for better image of a page from history. a beautiful film ingredients. but it is not enough. my impression - a story without borders. too many details, too sentimental, almost unrealistic. it is not the error of director; only mine. but it is first step to desire to love this large, strange, honest film. because the performance is well, few scenes are lovely but all seems be a cage of lovely bird. so, it is necessary to see it ! maybe, for not forgive a moment of recent history. to discover a gentle drama. to live emotions of a crumb from ordinary reality.
