great movie about relativity of values...
12 March 1999 | by quasSee all my reviews

Can be killing of person moral? If you thought that not, go and see it. It is well-done film about relativity of moral principles and principles for judging people. And it's, of course, not that simple - this one is a murder, but anyway he is "good".
