don't make them like that anymore ...
21 September 2018 | by constantinos-floSee all my reviews

Beautiful story developed patiently but rewarding, that takes you on a trip to the Renaissance Parma. The sets are stunning. The actors performance are amazingly balanced, avoiding over-dramatization.

What a beautiful and unpredictable ending yet fully justified. And the most haunting scene of the film at the end, inside the Italian church under the divine melodies of ave maria, the two lovers only looking at each other manage to express the deepest and most intense love .... An epic to not be missed.
