fine piece of art
29 April 2001 | by elvirakarinaSee all my reviews

I just saw the film, and i am still surprised that it's rarely passed on television, an excellent combination of love and tragedy, just what my brain needed, a fine, too fine piece of art.If you are addicted to that kind if movie, i recommend "Sparrow".
