23 October 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

it is far to be impressive. or example of high performance. but its purpose is not to be more than a warning. an exercise to reflect reality sides and propose only a story about it. the facts are well-known. the possibility of a love relation between presumptive enemies is not new. the movie seems be only a sketch without deep dimension. but it is an useful remember about the borders of an every day drama. and it is not exactly the case of one land but the relation of ordinary people with theirs roots, cultural differences, cultural identity of the other. it can be not very convincing or a not inspired lesson. but it represents more than a play with thesis or conciliatory/neutral vision about facts. it is a form of testimony who remember only pieces of a dangerous game. without propose a precise solution, only possibilities. its message is universal. so, a film as seed for reflection. and that can be an admirable occasion for self discover.
