strange but beautiful
29 May 2000 | by mf12See all my reviews

Panzer's story is strange in a beautiful way. A monk who falls in love with a young black girl is really unusual. But I had no problems to accept his characters. There is a real development in the relationship of the two. Something that I miss in the most (especially Hollywood) movies.
