God and love felt in a movie
22 November 2019 | by alexandra_1-896-683815See all my reviews

I have never watched a movie made with so much love and deep massage... it is so moving it kept me thinking about the story weeks after I watched it. I kept crying almost all the time yet I felt so inspired and full of bless and bliss! I highly recommend!
