one of the profound useful films. for the grace to discover the levels of a social page. for the delicacy for define a love story. for the wise manner to give the portrait of family. for Sarah, first. a film about hope. impressive for its bitter simplicity. and for the art to present the essence of a world who seems so far by ours. a film like a long chain of questions. fascinating search of truth and admirable portrait of the force and beauty of courage to be yourself. in fact, like many films using same theme, a poem about woman. her universe, her force to transform reality and define the dreams as sketches of happiness. historic realities. and great self definition.
