So touching
22 August 2017 | by (The world) – See all my reviews

Very smart, subtle and finally hearth-breaking movie. Strength of traditions against modernism. Not at all black and white issues as it can be commonly described sometimes. On the contrary, the movie achieves a deep analysis of main character's emotions and evolution and the greatest success of this movie may be the empathy we feel, little by little, for all the family members involved in this drama, despite their antagonism. The end arises a strong feeling of sadness as we become powerless witnesses of a tragedy which seems awfully predetermined.
