A creative picture of life
2 April 2019 | by zeionaraSee all my reviews

A beautiful story about life with it's hardnesses and joyfulness es, perfectly told. The most significant points to notify are large amount of original visual representation of the main character's feelings (which makes it be a quite similar to the 'Great mystical circus', interesting unpredictable plot which is not overloaded of dialogues nor monotonous narrative neither unnecessary nuances. Worth mentioning also well developed composition of picture in whole, good actors and colorful image, however, in Wonderwheel the picture seems to be a little brighter.
