box. and more.
26 June 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

one of films with a strange purpose - to give questions. not a great story or impressive acting. only a form of if about the rules, expectations and the role of challenges. about appearances. and the right answer. the competition between two boxers. a new one and a star of box hall. the tension. and the last scene. one of the films who propose to imagine the deep essence of relations. and the right way to discover the other. a box story. different by many others. but useful. for this small motif.
