Experiencing Interruptions?

The Great Magician

The short-film from the debutant Pietro Lago reveals the intrinsic cumplicity between the bond uniting grandchildren and grandparents. The supreme and sublime love generates care and at the same time creates the pain and the fear of losing someone who is loved so deeply, because in fact, this love also reveals his own portrait, his "I" within, his origin. The necessity of learning and doing things a little bit like them is much more than gratitude by your origin, it's the pride and pleasure of being alive.
