the truth
24 November 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

one of many stories from East. same subject, same evolution. the bitter sadness, the angry and the people as parts of a social machine. Crulic is, not doubt, a masterpiece. for its precise diagnosis of a large phenomenon. for the impeccable art. for the wise manner to ignore comfortable clichés. for the cold atmosphere. for the remind of truth. for the science to give to it the right form. a film about a man. like too many others in same situation. a man in a foreign country. accused in arbitrary way. his revolt. his fight. bureaucracy. and the end who puts all in an ice light. Crulic is one of films who must be rediscover time by time. for understand the other. for understand again, in better manner, the life. for not ignore the insignificant people. and, maybe, for hope.
