wise storytelling
7 February 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A delicate theme. And the wise manner to use it. The parenthood, a poor Indian surogate mother, the accusation about a succesfull radio man and revelation about his past, the different feelings and a noble purpoise. One of the basic virtues - the performances. And the delicate manner of storytelling. The conflict between states. And the inspired end. A short film about a precious dream. And its price, context, roots and fruit.
