A piece of art
16 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Patients" is one of these movies that will change your life and transport you far far away. It would be a mistake to not give a chance to an experience like that. The story is touching and beautiful, the tone is rough but funny as well. Acting is simply amazing and incredibly natural. The photography is sublime (some parts are speechless between the intense music and the pictures)...well the list of qualities could be very long.

This movie is full of intelligent humanity marked with respect and positive building. To say that I loved that movie is a weak word, it has been a real crush. Go for it, definitely.
