Beautifully theatrical.
2 October 2018 | by hugle-83710See all my reviews

I think this is a piece of art. Everyone say that is too dark, but I think that darkness is part of that epoque and part of this history. Beautiful performance by the actors, beautiful cinematography and a great history in general. Well done for this one. This is how theatre is, and this was a amazing way to show it.
