Quotes

Stephanie Anderson: You know I have nothing but contempt for you. Sitting there year after year listening to miserable people like me tell you how the world does destroy them. Have you ever once felt anything like the pain they feel? All the despair...all the fear? You make your living from their suffering and you don't understand a shred of it. Anyone of us is more qualified to speak than you because we have been there. We are still there.

6 January 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Beautiful performances,, beautiful story, splendid Julie Andrews and one of films who could be more than useful. because it is a simple story about life. about art, fall,, fear, love, insecurity and fictional options. because it is a pledge for discover yourself in the other. because the story is familiar. but different from this perspective. and this does it beautiful. and useful. and so bitter.
