seductive
17 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is far to be surprising. old love story, the child, the difficult situation who makes difference between before and after, few drops of clichés and the second chance, the essential question and the right choice. nothing new but the fresh manner to blend the ingredients does the difference. it becomes realistic, seductive, dramatic and keep the rhythm in nice style. empathy is the basic spell. because the Charming Prince , who could remind Frozen, is a good point, the levels to become mother are build with grace, bitter humor and precision, the portrait of family and the doubts and the dialogues are the right forms and colors and flavor. a film who could be defined as the right job. and that does it charming .
