East soul, 21 December 2012
Author: Armand from Romania

a wedding. a war. a cross. a funeral. short - a delicate image from East. only suggestion. slice of an ancient world. portrait of a form of survive, love and hope. the title - piece from tradition. the action - skin of deep reality. a film about courage as sign of faith. about profound state of soul. about truth like life root of basic gesture. because reality is out of accidents. and the courage - part of an old universe law. impressive - the art to use fundamental elements who defines Russian soul. the force of silence. the light of small gestures. and final piece. as peace cover. as bone of a sacred bone of tradition. a way. like a circle. and faith. as its heart.
