powerful
18 January 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

same story. new level. amazing acting. and new characters. picture of a world, scene for a remarkable bad guy , web of a bank and same Cattani in action. a part who describes more than slice of confrontation. its subject - map of a land created, brick by brick , as a testimony about evil illusion. essence - sense of things in a war out of rules. play of victims who believes in theirs personal victory. key - large frame of nuances. and realistic picture of sacrifice lines as structure of existence. a powerful part. and good prepare for the mission of Silvia Conti. in fact, pledge for hope. and testimony about a battle without end.
