27 October 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a novel adaptation. convincing, powerful, delicate, touching. not only for bitter story, bizarre, impressive, like a calligraphic line but for interesting performance. Alba Rohrwacher, Vinzenz Kiefer explore each side of roles and give not only an impeccable acting demonstration but a new light who covers ordinary details. more than a love story, gray, hard, gloomy, it is a precise image about the need of the other. about lost in yourself, about high of words, about sacrifice and decisions who reflects an empty soul world. it is a different love story and a beautiful salted movie. that is all. not great, not unique. only different as result of a director manner to create perfect skin for words and images and to chose the ideal cast for its admirable project.
