A peculiar drama about love and poetry
17 April 2021 | by zeionaraSee all my reviews

Very beautiful movie though it is not as simple as could be - it seems that some scenes are too abstruse whereas some are easily comprehensible. Actors are nice, the music is mellifluous and the main story itself is fine and clear. The plot is splitted into multiple chapters which makes it easier to watch the movie by parts or even to find a point on which to decide to stop watching.

As for me it is an original pretty picture not similar to anything I have seen previously so I would give it a rather high score.
