a gem
29 October 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It seems a version of "Black Swann". And, in large lines, it is one . But, more significant, it is a profound beautiful film. About fear, about fight against yourself, about vulnerability, about fall and succes and result of a brilliant acting. A film about a young cellist, an accident and the risk to brocke an entire hard working career. The refuges. The evening of concert. And the applauses. Short, pure gem.
