Quotes

Daniel: You know what we're good at? Giving up on people. Pointing the finger at them. To forgive doesn't mean to forget. "Forgive" means "love". To love someone despite their guilt. No matter what the guilt is.

Just consider watching this movie
2 January 2020 | by miloszpSee all my reviews

I know watching foreign stuff maybe difficult, but if you're able to, just watch it. I'm Polish but I don't feel any sort of connection to the movie's background and yet the story still amazed me on so many levels. Each and every performance is so honest and breathtaking and I personally love the technical side of this movie. It's a must watch of this year
