Luna Chu
17 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Her story. Her dream. Her succes. And its roots, desires, father. A lovely film about life. Its duties. Its anonymous maker. And the kick transforming everything. Luna Chu is one of characters reminding ourselves. And this is the basic motif for see "One small step". For its story. For its symbols. And for the seductive simplicity of it. A film about succes as result of a gorgeous dream.
