Among other things, a great love story
30 June 2020 | by th-grapsasSee all my reviews

A lot of things have been said for this great movie, and most of these focus on the political aspects, the voyage back or away from home, etc. What I notice though, is that this movie is a great love story as well. And it doesn't even try to be one!
