"Letters" is a film about beautiful and sudden love. It tells us that every loss is a new link in a regular chain of future findings. Love is the thing that always starts when finished. And when losing it, in the moment of temporary emptiness, we look back to see one more time what we’ve just lost. We don’t even suspect that this time everything is waiting for us in the future, and the lines of new happiness have already appeared in our illusive loss of our past.
