a deep appreciation for a deep introspection in human's heart
21 September 2014 | by manna286See all my reviews

such a beautiful and touching movie! i was amazed how they presented an artist's heart, and an artist's calling. i enjoyed so much watching this movie and i appreciate the tenderness and deep understanding of artist's conditions, not only during that time, but in our times also. i am also a bit sad because not so many people understood the message of the movie. there is some criticism concerning some minor mistakes. anyhow, i would like to express my gratitude and to congratulate the team and the actors who played in this drama. there were no bad people. there were people who were hurt, there were people who sought for healing their souls. and the art, the pure and true art is able to do it. i believe in this message of the movie. thank you!
