great
24 November 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is not only a very good short film on dyslexia or inspired adaptation of real case but a touching, well nuanced and wise portrait of motherhood. A mother fighting for save her son from easy social ettiquetes. A hard, tough work. And admirable performances. A support for reflection is this film. Great scene by scene. A film not only about dyslexia but about the precise form of love of a mother for her son. And, in essence, powerful definition of the fundamental importance of an unique connection.
