MY END COMMENT. In my opinion, thisdramateached me thatall in thelifeispossible, speciallyourdreams. When I watchedthemovie, and sawthelastscene, I couldunderstandthatthere are goodpeople in thisworldyet, and notallislost. Also, I´dliketotellthatthismoviedidn’tmake me cry. Eventhoughtit’s a sadend, I expressthatconmovized me a little. xD To finish, I think not everybody can defend other persons, specially, die to save somebody you love too much.
