Dance in rain
12 January 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

Questions. One answer. And search of self - definition. Tales of three lives. And crumbs of their world as seeds for happiness. A movie like a dance in rain. Cloudy, clear,cold, fresh, fragile limits. Mirrors of ages and pieces of freedom. A earthquake and some flowers. Not remarkable film but one of many who creates a circle of memories and nostalgic questions. Puzzle , game and exercise of feminine essence. Ordinaries facts and levels of beauty. Essay about small things and relationship. Fights against errors and woman as axis of basic truth. At final, masks of same person or just steps in park evening. Sensitive, delicate, minor, strange, common. A movie. Like open window.
