It’s a good film, but too sad for my actual mood. I guess I get into these plot very easily now – always see myself in them, always think “that could have happened to me if…”, or will it be like that in X year time?
I also think about everybody in this situation – because the story in is this film is perfectly real and more common that we can imagine, even today – and how sad their lives are and how simple it can be to change a little bit of our own destiny, if only we learn to listen to the other and maybe give up some things.
When I first heard about the film I thought it was one of those war/revolution films with a bit of romance in the middle. But it’s not a political plot (thank goodness), it’s not about wars or revolutions. It’s just a simple story of people trying to be happy. Bitterweet, just like life.
