...as refuge and as only realistic exploration of reality. As source of answers. And as seed for understand yourself. The film has the huge virtue to give the perfect tone about a delicate theme. A young lead actor who must be defined as amazing. A family crisis who is presented in its basic, fundamental traits. And a slice, a beautiful slice of fairy tale. The end is perfect . And the aura of childhood works in impecable manner. That is all. And it is enough for pure, authentic emotions and for a trip across the stars., in the heart of the world of Stefan.
