Very truthful and touching
12 September 2006 | by leila-44See all my reviews

This is one of the most touching movies i've ever seen and in my opinion it is definitely worth to watch. It is movie about Love. But not just a melodrama. All the story of Faina's life shown to us is leading to the one simple but powerful message. Maybe not everyone will be able to actually understand and feel the truthfulness of it, but those who ever suffered, loved and tried to find the key to the mystery of life, they will appreciate this movie. It's been said already a long long time ago that our world holds just on love, but nowadays these words often sounds even trite. This movie reminds us old but the only truth, and it really makes it like a sparkle in the darkness - 'cause we need it it to be reminded so much. So my only advice - just watch it, but don't take it as just an entertaining movie, because it is meant to touch your heart.
