We all have the right not to reconcile with our past.
A man who lost children, wife and his brother, and then reconcile with his nephew, his wife, himself, he understood the growth, responsibility and independence,
finally still choose to give up and leave. He knows all the truth, still had a bad life. One Man.
Not much lines, not much expression. every mood changes are in place conveyed, when I watched this film, often have impulse and want to embrace the man on the screen, tell him everything will be okay.
But this is the most moving place is that it is not a successful conclusion. Most time “Everything will be fine” does not apply to real life.
Also worth mentioning is the soundtrack of the film. The film soundtrack style is the melodious violin, no matter how piercing pain, background music is melodious.
