a tragedy
1 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A story who can not be presented. Too personal, bitter. And this is the lead virtue of film - to use the right tone, to have the shining presence and performance of the young actress in the role of Lea, to give the precise sketch of a profound tragedy. A film about a fundamental loss in the most neutral space, in a moment when happiness is so common. A film of nuances. Admirable for the inspired script and for the art of director.
