Amazing and Beautiful
15 July 2014 | by parabluemusicSee all my reviews

Excellent movie and good emotions brought out... and a storyline and solid film plot that will keep the audience absorbed and remember.. The film is centered along a few characters, which is good as there aren't too many distractions.. In a movie that doesn't has too many 'other' details of surroundings put in place, eg historical background, over-featuring the politics and external characters/story plot, there's always a danger of lag of materials making the movie boring.. However, the director manage to streamline the film, with good arrangement, right music, and good acting, into something that can really touch people's hearts.. It's been a long time since good movies like that are released.. This film is too underrated..
