Nothing less than a masterpiece
on 6 August 2014
A beautiful, tragic, yet ultimately uplifting story about how one man's impossible choice during the war haunted him for the rest of his life; but how he was able unwittingly to inspire a stranger to follow her dreams. As ever with a film by Ozpetek, it's beautifully constructed and filmed. In my opinion, it's his masterpiece (so far).
NB: My version was bought direct from Italy and has a separate DVD of extras, behind the scenes stuff etc. Plus you can turn off the subtitles!
