touching
7 December 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

story of a boy . or only profound faith in pure form. delicate performance. touching air. and subtle games of mysteries. more than a short film, like many others, it is a mirror. not for a case but for Romanian reality. because, behind image it is a large scene. so, it is a parable. or only a slice. the judge is every viewer. because, after its end, you discovers than it is not exactly piece of a biography. it is a part from yourself. about innocence, sufferance, faith, love and key as paper heart. a film like memento mori but, in same time, in a special form, a religious movie. because the bag of boy is solution of problem, transformation of time, annihilation of sickness. so, easy way to good state of things. for a kind of soul spring. must see it!really, must see it !
