's review

it was amazing

Original title is "Laterna magica".It is the history of a little boy who needed love. His mother had consulted a pediatrist. He had forbiden her to have affection gesture to his son. This is the history of an unhappy loveless little boy which discovers joy with a toy,a magic lantern.
He search happiness all his life. He met many women, he had many children. He had never find peace. He will deliver his anguishes in all his movies. I saw all of them. I prefer Monika, Persona,The Serpent's Egg, the seventh seal.Much of them are austere and full of culpability.
It is the story of a little boy who never find love.
