beautiful
23 July 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

one of films who has the force to seduce. for histories of characters, for the small universe who reflects the nuances of life, for the old flavor of lost age, for music, for dance as tools of survive. a film precious for its delicate air. for the embroidery of lives, for precise manner to present, in few lines, the map of an existence, for the young couple and for the old don Alvaro, for the end and for the feeling of a kind of archaeological of director. sentimental, beautiful, fragment from lost universe, it is one of films who seduces, image by image the viewer who becomes part of a circle in which the past, the frustration, the love, the lovely memories are frame for a movie brilliant for its profound honesty.
