superb
3 April 2021 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, superb is the only fair term to define it. Because it is just the expected telegram for many of us. Two men, very differents for so many aspects. And five meetings as borders of ages. Different reactions, different situations. And the fusion between the first and the last meeting. Short, a sort of contemporary poem. Must see it !
