impecable work
4 April 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A fine short horror. For the precise science to use a delicate subject in skin of fairy tale. You recognize all, from the grief of mother to the suffering husband. And the dollmaker, as the wizard from so many fairy tales. A film impecable crafted. Scene by scene. Moment by moment. And a splendid story about second chance.
