This film changed my life
8 May 2018 | by kumantsovaaSee all my reviews

The film has deep thoughts that you can only know with age. I strongly advise watching the younger generation. Perhaps the moments from the technical point of view are not ideal, but here the story and the hidden meaning can change your life (change your priorities)
