Does anything good last? Certainly not the 30-seconds of peace at the beginning of the film. Then it’s blood and thunder, the tragic end game of a short-lived affair; the beginning is the end. How did it come to this and why? Barylli probes for answers, replays the events, replays a time when something more extraordinary should have happened; , the love of the right woman by the right man. He was the one for Maria, and she was the one for Martin. It just might have worked out in an ideal world.
