beautiful
20 January 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

not special.but not exactly common.a kind of Spanish Shakespeare in love but with personal note. because it is, in some measure, a propaganda work. to remember figure of a great poet and playwright from Baroque period, a fresh delicate love story, a Romantic and, in same time, nice story it is an admirable idea. and the nuances of gray and green, the slices of theater play, the costumes, the buildings, the sky and sea, the air of fairy tale, all as parts of a precise portrait are good gifts for each viewer. it is not extraordinary. but, indeed, it is beautiful. and the short meeting with Sofia Braga or the correct performance of Alberto Ammann are not bad prizes for viewer.
