Galea's choice
29 April 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a woman. a palace. need of the other. confusion of feelings. and a choice. different lines as parts of a carpet. Russian flavor and impressive actress. slices of melancholy, expectations, illusions, autumn filigrees, air of sacrifice, abdications and hope. walls, angels, meetings, seeds of details. a film, like many others, about roots, life lessons and happiness as cactus flower. crumbs of worlds in huge bread of images, desires, accidents. result - an interesting film for its final taste - mixture between honey and ash. and Viktoria Feodorovna, as Georgian young woman portrait - axis for men, part of her refuge - work,anonymous silhouette in a museum, artist for angels bodies, flavor of past and its respiration. smoke of war and a sea without limits. a trip in secret parts of soul. and the choice. as first light in misty morning.
