Excellent movie with only few wrong moments
6 November 2017 | by susanna-duellmannSee all my reviews

What a beautiful film! The photography and soundscape is just like it should be. The movie reminded me of "Into great silence" and is for sure inspired by it. Sabine Timoteo, main protagonist of the film, is always a delight to look at but her dialogue! This is the one point I don't give to the film because it made me wince a few times. Anyhow: Strongly recommended.
