A masterpiece.
5 October 2015 | by (Queretaro) – See all my reviews

A hearth-warming story about friendship and the hardships of making new friends in unfriendly places. An improvised and minimalistic narrative and scenario will tell us about stuff such as hard work, regrets, life experiences, different points of view, duty, honor and consequences of your actions.

The great finale only is worth your time to watch this modern masterpiece, made for you by a savant prodigy of cinematographic arts, Svetlana Baskova. This movie is more than just a motion picture on your screen...

Green Elephant is love. Green Elephant is life.
