more than a wedding
24 April 2015 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

shadows from past. a wedding. dialogs about forbidden themes. a show. and the ash taste of a movie about family but, more important, about the signification of the roots. the Shoah is only the axis. the choices, the memories, the need of new beginning, the cold words and the exercises of reconciliation who are only new start for new crisis. a film who seems not be real original. not exactly for its status as adaptation of a play but for the pieces who are not originals for a genre of film. so, its virtue is the cruel honesty to remind and to use known tools for the sketch of profound pain who seems be only part of the past. a powerful film. who could be a puzzle of Brueghel 's fools parties and inspired manner to talk about a dark page from the XX th century.
