emotion
30 April 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The emotions are the basic gift of this short film about past, a decision, exam about yourself and definition about significant things defining us. delicate, gentle and touching is this story about a middle age man , at the end of his career, front to his image in mirror. for many , it could be sad. or fake. but the film has a precious virtue - propose alternative to prejudices. the way to understand. motifs, vulnerability, a sort of art and the retire. and an option changing everything. and its deep root.
