a dream
31 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A short documentary about faith. The simpleand powerful one. An ex-monk and his dream. Testimonies, memories, hard work, curiosity, oppinions. And a man keeping his project, too ambitious and almost crazy, as the purpoise of his life. His case is not unique but it remains special, touching and, maybe, bizarre. The film did not gives verdicts but reflects, in fine manner, the way of the old man. And it becomes more than a portrait but a beautiful eulogy to the dreamers .
