Sometimes what is strange when you watch a film is that you are struck by a great emotion at the sight of a guy eating a bowl of cereal or a boy putting on his backpack. An innocuous reply or even just a word can also deeply affect us. Cinema can do this kind of thing, make our body react in a funny way and remind us how fragile and beautiful we are
