Eastern hugs. Abraços de páscoa. Uskrs zagrljaj.

In order to celebrate Easter, watch this movie made by Croatian students. The link was sent to me by my friend Sandra Jakelic as an Osijek gift of Easter and I want to share it with you. The movie was inspired by Free Hugs Campaign and is located in the amazing city of Osijek. You can read in a chart the main characters take: Bespla zagrljaj (free hugs) and a sentence  starts this no-dialogue movie: there are two sides to every story.

The climax of the movie are the fascinating moments where people hug each other, as inspired by true love.

The beginning, however, is sad, dense. Violence in the air. The end of a love story? Probably.

The move ends with love in perspective. But mixed with bells ad Osijek sounds and scenes. Genuine human feelings hardly flourish in our cities: this is a sad side of a story. But if it does,we can live an epiphany. Happy Easter!

Para celebrar a Páscoa, veja este filme feito por estudantes croatas. Recebi o link de minha amiga Sandra Jakelic como um presente de Osijek. O filme foi inspirado pela Campanha mundial chamada Free Hugs e é rodado na bela cidade de Osijek. Você lerá no cartaz que os principais personagens seguram: Bespla zagrljaj (free hugs). Uma frase começa o filme: cada história tem dois lados.

O clímax do filme são os momentos fascinantes em que as pessoas se abraçam, como que inspiradas pelo amor verdadeiro.

O começo, contudo, é triste, denso. Violência no ar. Fim de uma história de amor? Provavelmente.

O filme termina com o amor em perspectiva. Mas misturado aos sinos, barulhos e cenários da cidade de Osijek. Autênticos sentimentos humanos dificilmente florescem em nossas cidades. É o lado triste da história. Mas se conseguem, podem nos proporcionar uma epifania. Feliz Páscoa!
