Good film, a life lesson!
5 January 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I liked it very much. Directed and edited in a style much different from the one offered by Hollywood movies, deals concrete problems of life. It's a good lesson for young naive women, who under the influence of a burning passion, can take wrong decisions, from which will suffer all their life. It is also a good opportunity to see things from parent's perspective - who opposed some of our decisions sometimes and we just couldn't understand them. "How can be wrong when I KNOW and I FEEL it's good? Parents just don't understand!!" Well, this movie shows you very clearly how something we felt it was perfectly good, can be awfully wrong...
