It is impossible to see the Southern Cross constellation (Crux) in Europe. This asterism is the most familiar star pattern in southern hemisphere and you can only see it from northern hemisphere in tropical latitudes, near the horizon and in certain seasons of the year.

deepest emotions represented with the lightest touch... beautiful
14 September 2015 | by TheNeelSee all my reviews

The Pandora express.. very soothing style of storytelling, the story is simple (kind of) but I felt it to be beautifully told..

A misunderstanding starts the story through which the protagonist starts to receive what he thought he always wanted.. by the end of the story he got what he never knew he was missing..

I felt the film explores the idea of ambitions and desires, how these contradict but either doesn't necessarily be a bad thing and how they amends with time and become something different..

The music is beautiful. The acting is ordinary. It has a happy ending.

A certain secondary character felt neglected by the film.

Ignoring that and considering it's just 93mins it is most definitely worth a watch.

I recommend it for people of all age groups. Thumbs Up,
