What are people saying?

  • Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Handcuffs

    To watch alongside Breza/The Birch Tree, in order to see from the croatian point of view the 2 strongest local customs in every civilisations: a wedding (for Handcuffs), & a funeral (for Breza). Beautiful then <3. Thus said, here's a sad story about a wedding going bad during anti-stalinism inquisitation. Feat. beautiful traditional songs and dances, traditional misogyny/patriarchy, typical social pressures, etc
