What are you writing?
A book, Governor.
We need to draft a letter to be sealed and...
A book? A book? Make children, not books. Learn a lesson from our Magistrate, Manuel.
I can't know how my children will be. But I do know how this book will be.

For the admirers of novel, it is a must see. For the simple viewer, it is a must see film. For the reasons easy to describe, becoming only suggest the essential. A film keeping slices from Kafka, Luchino Visconti , Ismail Kadare and Dino Buzatti. Exploring a world and exposing a character. And being so familiar. Because, in easy definition, it represents a well crafted film. Reflecting more a state of soul than a story. It is a confession like. Powerfull, precise, seductive and profound bitter.
