like a spring wind
31 May 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a film like a spring wind. hot, perfumed, not very power, hided in grass and leaves. or memories and love. it is not exactly a great movie but it is bitter-refreshing. and that virtue is important in its case. because beyond words, a book and a small tree , the dreams, intentions, gestures and revelations, in almost childish - delicate manner are good opportunity for remind one of profound roles of cinema - to discover and open windows. the key is not the story, the atmosphere or image. but the lead actor who gives to film a special aura. and precise equilibrium. a film as a state of soul. who reminds old images and use well known symbols .realistic for the its vision about basic life aspects. seductive for the skin of trip between past and present. and for poetic flavor who saves, always, everything. because it is the film of a book and a bonsai.
