When I was 31... movie diary, June 2014 (16 movies items)

"June 26, 2014 Polish title: Pluton (Platoon) Another after 'The Deer Hunter' movie about Vietnam in this month. And I have to admit that it was really in my taste. Great acting, very expressive characters, electrifying music. I really like it."
