nothing else
11 June 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a girl. two women. a past episode. a recollection. and the truth. nothing else. a sensitive story about feelings, past and accident. and a beautiful cast.nothing else. the tale is not new. but it is delicate and profound. the steps of search of truth is a precise work. and the final answer is like rain drops - clear, honest, dramatic. so, out of performance is the science to present a form of pain with many faces. and the beauty of a verdict. the fall of masks. the power of words. the force of gestures. the life as hided flower of choices and needs. a film like a moral lesson or like morning wind. because its object is silence as cloth of cry.or only walk of a mother and her daughter.
