Need to be seen, highly recommend
17 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have not seen such a good well developed story in a while. The film is full of artistic moments: classical music ,poetry, good acting. I liked the cast,I saw that they delivered and brought to the screen a very powerful story. I was actually very impressed that this romantic love drama touched such a strong subject and talked about women rights. You don't really see much of important, urgent topics in romantic movies and this was amazing, that the director was able to combine all the elements in his movie, and touched the topic of violence against women. The movie is well made and need to be seen and shared among people . Highly recommend this poetic drama for everyone.
