A beautiful love story
21 November 2017 | by ZiggiSee all my reviews

I'm not exactly sure what it is about this film that I like so much but It absolutely captured me and made me fall in love with both characters as much as they do with each other.

At first there was something somewhat unbelievable about their interaction but as the film goes on the magic of this connection is revealed through a tense story that takes us from Paris to Milan.

The acting, direction, production, and writing is brilliant and I think it truly succeeds in achieving that balance of thought, emotion, and entertainment that makes for good cinema.

This is probably one of those films I'll watch at least once a year. If you're into the style and genre, passing on it would be an injustice.
