beautiful
5 February 2021 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A beautiful film first for the high honest perspective about identity , clash of cultures, freedom and courage to become yourself. For admirable acting and for cinematography, for the precise traits of friendship story and for the wise explore of love story. A film useful for remind small things defining each of us. So, beautiful in its case has some many nuances and reflections...
