This was adorable from start to unfortunately finish!
20 January 2019 | by juanmuscleSee all my reviews

A wonderful tale , I would so highly recommend this, everything was spot on, the characters were rich and beautiful and enriched by the times and the backdrops, every single scene with its gorgeous transitions were an ample canvas for idyllic situations to learn about our deep and multi-layered characters in whose eyes we could see so many things for the script as the prolific brilliant dialogue is carefully bandied about only serves as the icing on the cake of this resplendent tale which unfolds like a rose blooming on the finest day of spring, just a masterpiece!
