After watching this movie, I feel like I've experienced my whole life.
Every once in a while, I watch the film again, and every time I get a new harvest.The film is not too skillful. It's driven by the plot.
The story of the hero of the film is told by a storyteller. Occasionally, flashbacks are used only to help the audience remember the last episode. The rest happened in strict chronological order.
We always say that life is like a play, but most people spend an ordinary life, but the main character of this film has an extraordinarily rich life.
The protagonist remained stubbornly at the heart of the creator in those stormy times, which is where the protagonist touched me.
My favorite part is the end of the film - the encounter of two poor writers.It's like the only spiritual consolation and hope left by the director after he devastated the audience's heart in more than two hours.
