touching
5 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The second chance and its limits. A meeting at each seven years. A sort of magic. And one of films who explores the memories of the viewer. All is seductive in the case of this short film, from idea, plot to performances. Because its basic source of seduction is "the if"". To be near the other . To joy by her. To discover her. And to understand the bitter truth. Short, a profound bitter, beautiful film.
