the memories
4 December 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a film about the clash against the past. more significant for its atmosphere. and for the drawings of emotions of characters. a house, an ex-lover, the silhouette of father and premises of new beginning. and, more important, the decision to define this new step to a future who seems be more fragile than past. something does this film a kind of experience for viewer. maybe, because Leonore is reflection of our small, significant decisions who are basis of each level of life .
