So beautiful, yet unsettling real: Of Mind and Music
20 April 2018 | by eunicecSee all my reviews

The most touching and real depiction about the human experience I have ever seen in years. From beginning to end, this movie had my attention; I could not believe I have not known about this movie until recently.
