I had absolutely different expectation when Mr.M showed me this movies to watch together. Mr. M is a fan of action packed movie, so I was expecting an action packed movie with shootings or high chasing scenes. Nevertheless, this movie is breathtakingly beautiful, the story line, the way it was shot and the music are carefully constructed to really set your emotions over the edge. Plenty of times the twists in the movies really makes me tighten my grip in the sofa
I was impressed with this movie, and would absolutely recommend this movie if you feel like watching something deep. Mr.M has long recommended me to watch Cinema Paradiso which is made by the same director and I for sure will
