An amazing story for those who really know how to live love and die.
11 October 1999 | by buzz-62See all my reviews

One of the best examples of amazing black and white photography. How do we capture atmosphere and one's soul? How do we tell about them?

For those who believe in fate, this is a film to see as well as for those who do not believe in it. Do we really just get chosen for our miseries or do we create those miseries? What is the percentage of effect of IQ when we talk about fate?

She lived loved and slowly died as she danced her life away with the gypsy crowd. The deepest agony of surviving in the Soviet Union.

Beautiful story telling and visual as well as very good performances. Asia is my mom my sister and my girl friend.

It is a must for all those who are into black and white photograph and visuals as well as those modern man walking around "knowing it all".

Enjoy.....
