If you're willing to suspend your disbelief for a moment, you'll love this film
30 August 2018 | by activateyourdnaSee all my reviews

In theatre, they call it "suspending disbelief". That is an art of the audience of which many Americans have lost their talent. The Europeans, less so. If you are willing to suspend your disbelief; to play in the world of possibility, of love, of romance, of momentary insanity, and redemptive goodness, then this film is for you.

No, it doesn't hand you the answers on a silver platter, but what fun is knowing the certainty when the unknown, the mystery, is so rich in possibility?

For those willing and able to play, to be compassionate to, in brief, be a little more European, this film will please you in every aspect of the word.
