Stunned!
8 September 2003 | by allessiexrsSee all my reviews

Stunned I was when I saw this movie. The story-line, the atmosphere, the soundtrack, the acting and actors and especially the art-direction were amazing. From the first moment I was caught by this fairytail for grown ups. You wanna dream away in the cinema...just visit this movie!
