As a watcher of many movies I often find myself bored at watching the same tired clichés recycled over and over and packaged as original movies.
Thats why i was refreshed to watch this movie- a film that has an original story and gives us a look at a different world.
I found the casting to be excellent. The male lead was strong & handsome and inhabited his role with controlled emotion and dignity. The female lead was beautiful in an innocent way and her demure manner and emotional expressions were well suited for her role.
Well done & thanks for a good film experience!
