about limits
19 February 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A dark comedy. admirable for the reflection of contemporary crisis. a policeman. his wife. a young man, wounded in an incident. his wife. different values. a dinner. and the fall of a gray life front to many obscure questions. good intentions. and the refuge. it is a gret work. realistic, delicate, precise, usefull. and bitter at whole. because its theme is real simple - us. the fragility of values, conviction, need to save the comfortable past, naivety, desire to be the best version of yourself. and the desillusion. Alain Hernandez is magnificent as David. his performance reminds the ordinary confusion , in smart and touching manner. so, a real great film, about limits.
