The story of golfer
2 February 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A mugged golfer, spanked fish, love story, a hang and the genius of Keaton. One of clever stories telling not exactly adventures of an unlocky man but translating, in the most inspired manner, the spirit of a time. A film so intense than it becomes a magnificent travel across appearences and honor and missunderstandings, proposing the hero portrait in a seductive way.
