Today it feels perfect! :-)
22 March 2019 | by verlinelSee all my reviews

A poetic, funny and touching modern-times re-imagining of the Cinderella story and Chaplin's The Kid with a good cast, lovable characters, beautiful cinematography and a very fitting soundtrack. Oh, and with almost no words. :-)

I really enjoyed the fact there is a bit of everything in this movie - comedy, drama, action, suspense, erotica; love, hope, exasperation, misunderstanding, sadness, cruelty, humanity...

Unlike other people, I don't think the artistic exaggeration in a couple of the scenes was over the top - this is one of the main characteristics of comedy and in this specific instance it actually helped show in an amusing way the character's dedication to complete the mission. From what I heard around me after the end credits, the rest of the audience seemed to agree with me. Also, everyone laughed a good deal which counts as a great success in my books.
