about yourself
6 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The episode is an interrogation. Simple, direct, cold, precise. About decisions , price of life, gestures, guilt. About the manner to define near reality. A murder who is not pretext for a complex case but only one of questions proposed more by Socrates by Dostoievski. The first clue - the cinematography. And the cuut of scenes.
