A whole new version of a french romance. I loved the translation from romantic European balconies to salty freighter balconies. I also appreciate a lot the 'woman empowerment' factor. I find it really important that cinema worries about representing other types of femininity. Romance has been idealized for so many years and I think this one explains very well a type of love that has always existed but not everybody likes to admit. It kind of helped me understand it without freaking out about my own experiences. Photography was gorgeous! The casting was amazing, it's so inclusive and diverse. The music caught me.
