noble purpose
23 October 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it could be a touching movie. but something remains wrong. the acting, the passion for close up, the ambition to inspire emotion. and the bad use of basic idea. sure, a short film has its rule and in this case, the end seems be to send the duty for discover/invent the answers to the public. but not this is the wrong part. only the absence of empathy with the characters. the moral dilemma is too unpolished. the run - to theatrical, reminding Forrest Gump in fake way. not a bad film. only one with too many obstacles to the sensitivity of public.
