Deep
8 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a very deep and moving film.

I saw it over 10 years ago for the first time and was fascinated, and I still am.

The story is well constructed and follows the human rhythms, nothing is calculated or forced, but all is just terribly... real.

It's an incredible story of love, loyalty, violence, integrity, doubts, with two protagonists at the limits of their lives. All characters are played by good actors, but the young girl and the professor (Vanessa and Bruno) stand out... what a performance!

For me this is a masterpiece.
