Suuuch an awesome film and timestamps are extremely awesome, too ) It has left this warmth in my heart..Unfortunately, I haven't got any chance to show this film to the children being a teacher in Russia. Hate being a tolerant person in such an intolerant country :( Thank you anyway ! I'll keep on doing these tasks on my own :)
