A Stunning film...
27 October 2016 | by bavandurairajSee all my reviews

I don't give reviews for each and every film I watch but this time I couldn't control myself for not giving my opinion.

"Le ciel attendra" what a film. The film has everything to keep you in your seat along the film. I was very moved by the subject of the film. I wanted to see the exact transformation from a normal person to an anti-citizen. The cinematography, the editing, the narration, the dialogues, actors performances, direction and everything was awestruck.

Once I came out from the theatre, I started doing publicity of the film everywhere and with everyone.

Long way to go...

Thanks for this nice film!!!
