I watched this film in italian, could not totally follow every small details but in general i follow the main plots, stll i cried a lot at the end of the film. The main actor Maestro in this film is unbeatable, music is really good. We find sympathy with the character Remi because he is like a ball, being kicked to different persons, from here to there, it is not something he can choose as it is destiny...an orphan is borned to be unlucky. Yet he is lucky to be in the hand of a great guy, who is looking for paying off his sin of mistakenly killed his own son and wife. The character of this boy is surely not as attractive as the Maestro, but he take active role in choosing his own destiny (once in Lisa home and the other time is when he was sent to the family which pretend to be his). This boy choose letting Maestro to go and cure his disease instead of crying in front of Maestro to take him away from this horrible family. Remi shows love and sacrifices to Maestro rather than a spoiled and selfish kid, and that makes him to be a great person in the future, and that is also why Maestro loves him to an extent that he did not care anymore about his own health an return to save him from the horrible family. Even though i found a bit cliche at the end of the film that actually Remi is borned in a rich family, i still love this film. This is a story mainly focuses on plot and characters building, our family enjoyed a lot. Thanks for the producer and director!
