Wonderful piece of cinema
20 October 2015 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Last year there was only one film that completely shocked me, that put in turmoil the brain and heart, occupying a place for a very long time. It was MOMMY, by Xavier Dolan. DEPARTURE had a similar effect on me. It's a small film, independent, a debut. And perhaps for all these three reasons, there is an urgency so sincere to tell this story to make its strength and its power literally unstoppable. DEPARTURE is a wonderful piece of cinema, which reveals a great director of the future. Powerful, bright, completely honest. Well written, well directed, well played. It comes from the heart. And it goes to the heart.
