Never stop dreaming
9 June 2013 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Yeah, i know what you are thinking right now score is around 5.0 it must be a terrible movie...(Error sound) you are wrong! This film is about dreaming, but why would you believe in dreams, you ask? Well, why not? Difference between real life and dream is almost equal to none. When you are dreaming you think its real, so from dreamers perspective that's also reality like this one when i'm typing a review. OK, it's to put dreams philosophy aside, as i know really nothing about it :P. I really enjoyed the movie, even more than i hoped to. So if you like the subject and a good romantic movie, give it a try it won't hurt i promise. But if it does let know that i'm wrong. Sorry if i bored you with this, and i hope you enjoy the movie! I give it 8.0 only because i really liked the subject and i guess i love romance, objective it should be around 7, 7.5.
