Exit the highway of life and discover the side...
After watching the movie “La vie Moderne” is started to ask myself questions: - Are we rushing through our lives? - Why don’t we pay attention to details anymore? - Do we become some sort of machines without brains? - Why bashing culture away? - Is technology/the internet really affecting us that much? - Are we becoming individuals?
