What a beautiful movie
18 June 2019 | by goodfellows-31330See all my reviews

What a beautiful movie. Not over the top but understated. Music was a stand out and Sandrine Bonaire was perfect as the widowed mother who had lost purpose in life and decided to take a risk and make a new life in Morocco
