a memory
14 August 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is one of great movies for memories . or a precious meet with a simple story . because it represents the beautiful adaptation of a novel and useful remind of the importance of small things. it is not real a religious film. it is not exactly a fairy tale against the similarities with one. it is only a touching experience with yourself. its axis - the look of Pablito Calvo. its source - the symbols, the image, the splendid crucifix and the delicate humor. it is not a story about faith or miracle. maybe about motherhood in a special manner. it is not the best example of coherence of precision of details. but only a trip in the essence of life. simple. touching. convincing. one of films who preserve the taste of feelings who seem be forgotten. but this film has the gift to remind the form and the force of each from them. so, enjoy it !
