A powerful - bitter- profound -honest film. About a drama so clear to perceive from the Eastern Europeans, so admirable presented by the film , scene by scene, reveilling a profound tragedy and the truth who escape to words. A film for remember about disapered kids, their parents and the experience of a medium. Maybe, useful is the fair term for define it. Or maybe, delicate hommage to people fighting , in theirs way, against an injust reality , using the profound sacrifice for freedom.
