beautiful
12 March 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Touching and bitter and seductive in profound sense. And just impressive . Two different boys, same interest, fists and try to intimidate the other and beginning of beautiful friendship. All using the inspired storytelling and the beautiful cinematography. Great atmosphere, powerful message.
