I like it
23 September 2016 | by rocdurSee all my reviews

It is a way to feel in any huge station around the word. But the immigrants photos are great. Thought it was made in 2013, it seems 2016. I think the roles are fancy interpreted. I wen to see in the french festival 2016 at Bogota, other ways never would see it because it was not at movies. When the dogs appears, I Thoug it was finish in bad way, but it was tender the role it had. The aspect of Sacha seemed to me like a bad person, it was very nice to discover how sweet he was. Finally the role of the "vieille" is the tenderness of all. Her poor self-esteem is marvelous transformed by the young guy. I recommended but for film buff
