Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty depressing, although worth watching. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member the movie played, everybody was doing something else Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member An amazing movie with a fascinating story plot that follows one man's life, a street magician who decides to make a positive conclusion after he learns that he has a terminal illness. These positive effects are inflicted upon those around him, past and present. This is by far one of those few remarkable movies that absolutely stand out for the overall compassion and kindness that humanity reflects, as it has in Tadeo. Good cast. Definitely worthy.
