a story
1 May 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

One of stories so simple than, at first sigh, the temptation is to say than it has not subject. or only a blank love story. with its steps, levels, beginning, troubles, gestures. but not words. after its end, you understand. it is more. a story about solitude. and hope . one of stories easy to ignore. because seems be an ordinary one. but, on screen, it could change you. your perspective. and, maybe, about the meanings of love.
