Language of Love

I used to avoid foreign films because I thought I would not understand them FULLY anyway. BUT THIS, this film. indeed, speak of the universality of love. First few minutes of the film, I said, "hey, they gave it away already." I thought the film would be soooo boring. If not with the outstanding performances of the actors, I would say that I was right that the whole movie would be indeed boring. BUT NO. These two old-age actors brought out the best of performances their characters needed. The message was undeniably delivered with the emotions, the crying, the touches, ALL OF IT. I understood it into my heart. And yes, THE TWIST. When you thought you already grasped it, it surprises you!
