My Masterpiece number 137 !!!
11 September 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

I remember when I went to elementary school at fifth grade, all students had to read some novel as homework, one the first was "The Boys of the Paul Street", I had eleven years old, so too young, somehow I never forget this fabulous anti war novel, years later I found this novel adapted to the cinema, after four years stored in my collection l finally have a nerve to watch, more than expected this picture brings my early memories from my youth, what a movie, what a story, the director could translate to screen all message from this priceless book, the teenagers make exactly the men on war, every single war protocol, the meeting, the flags, the rules, spies, commanders, everything from the Hungarian Ferenc Molnar's immortal work, sadly has so few reviews shown us that it's certainly too much unknown by overwhelming majority, that's the life!!
