Beautiful original story
17 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

​I really enjoyed watching this beautiful ​original​ ​love​ story​ starring Ryan Guzman. He did a great job playing poetic lover, usually I saw him as an action hero in films. There are many romantic moments in the movie, which remind me of ​great​ amour​ films I watched when was living in Europe. BEYOND PARADISE​ is full of unexpected moments​,​ and the dialogue is​ fresh and very well ​ written​.​ Plus the movie has RUMI & LORCA's love poems. Also the music score contains captivating classical music (Tchaikovsky) and Eastern music.​ ​ I recommend the film as it also ​deals with​ very deep ​current women issues​, which will touch everyone. I watched it on iTunes platform, which I usually use for watching the films, but it's available everywhere now.
