If Aki could laugh, I wouldn’t mind not being able to laugh forever. If Aki wants to cry, I would hold back my tears forever. If I were told to die for Aki, I would gladly die. I wished for not a single thing since then. The thing that burned to ashes with Aki was my heart.

I watched this film tonight, and wow… it really made me cry . It’s not a conceptual film, it’s a dramatic one .
I can’t quite write down an interpretation of it, since all the feelings in this movie are very clear . What I can do is ephathize one of its great aspects: Duration . The key scenes had the right durations, in the right times and with the right moments .
The film’s photography was also great. I’ll put some good photographs from the film in the end of the post . I would say it is a good film to watch when we’re feeling less human and want to recognize that we still have some sense .
This is one of my favorites, “Gridare Amore dal Centro del Mondo” or “Crying Out Love, In the Center of the World” in English title. A very simple and clichè story but still, it did not fail to make me cry my heart out. A very natural story that brought me to such emotions. :(
