great
22 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the theme is not new. but the grace of acting, the sides of story, the love in a special definition are the good points who defines a remarkable film. it is a real surprise to discover David Cross. because he has the inspiration to translate not only emotions but to give roots and force of a not comfortable role. the meeting between two profound different civilizations. and the fight , sacrifices and compromises to save the other. a good romantic film in a profound sense. because it has a rare form of beauty and touching manner to tell it with delicate precision, level by level. a film who becomes, after its end, a seed. for memories. and for admiration for a simple story, a simple film who pledge for profound discover of the other not only as result of noble feelings but as way to define yourself.
