Goofs

When Emernc and Magda are arguing about 'kitsch', Emernc stomps into the entryway and dumps the boot holding the umbrellas onto the floor. As she does, she is standing on a red rug, but when the camera angle switches to display the umbrellas and the boot, the rug is no where to be seen. As the camera shot switches, the rug is back.

20 November 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the definitions are not the inspired way to describe this special film. because it is a return to the small things who are too precious and fragile for be parts of a definition. and because the acting is , in this case, not exactly good or remarkable or impressive or seductive or precise. it is only is. sure, the axis is the work of Hellen Mirren. but her admirable performance gives opportunity to discover the sides of story in the right light. and to her partners to build solid characters. it is a film about a meet and memories and tragic decisions and the present who preserves old scarfs. and about the silence inside the words. a film from the East because the East is the best embroidery of old dramatic stories and immortal memories. a film for reflect, understand and admire. and about trust. and friendship. and the bitter beauty of solitude.
