manifesto
1 March 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

One of manifesto against homophobia. simple, not real convincing but nice. for generous idea, for the good intentions, for the meeting between biology teacher and the lead character. the only sin is the fact than it do not work. something missing to do it credible and it is not exactly the performance of young actors, not the story but the desire of director to propose a manifesto more than a movie. but, sure, the noble intention remains noble and the question of film is real significant for the society of our days. maybe, in better reflection .
