wonderful story
13 January 2012 | by nolamaria76See all my reviews

I don't understand that this movie, which I could see through Mubi, was already on TV in America. Because, yes there is a problem for modern women in this world: We are not all SITC galls or desperate housewives. As a career-woman I recognize myself. What when you become single all of a sudden again nearing 40? The director must have understood that this theme is important, because he choose to have the woman played by three actresses. And so the theme of this movie comes clearer I realized. The music came to me too, it is quite remarkable! It is a tender story, about getting older, about obsessions, about letting go...I hope more women will see this film and share my thoughts!
