User Reviews

a subject deserving more
11 January 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is a beautiful film. But soulless . The theme is generous, the actors are admirables . But you feel nothing. No emotion,no thrill . Only , at the end, the shadow of compassion. Something essential is missing. The director seems in hurry development, the love stories are just sketches , the characters are reduced to few lines. The virtue - the delicacy of unfinished stories. A delicate sketch. But nothing more.
