I remember well when this movie was released. Indeed, it was a big critical success and it even won the Golden Bear in the Berlin Film and the Golden Globe for the Best Foreign Language Film among other prizes. With this in mind, I was really eager to check this flick, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released, and I had some rather high expectations. Well, to be honest, even though ... read more
