the past
4 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A motorcycle accident. And the desire to return to past. A boy. And his brother. A theater play about a king and an elk. And the desire to recreate the past steps. And, sure, the result. All so simple than it becomes touching. As a sort of fairy tale. Or as answer to few viewers. In rest, the right boy as Andreas, the beautiful cinematography and the smart - poetic plot.
