After having watched two movies,both belonging to the the eastern European category,without feeling to comment on either,I tried this one.I honestly got blown away by the movie.It is a romance, but avoids all the clichés this genre has ever created,down to this day.This one has stood the cruel test of time,and will cruise for times to come.The rustic setting,country-life,amazing cinematography,the music and the performances make this movie an unforgettable one.The setting is almost magical with never-end fields of grain,swaying in the wind,and shot in the most poetic way.The rural life,the horses add to the magic the setting creates.The drama,however,in this magical setting is as real as it can be,which is why the movie is seriously timeless.The nostalgia this film evokes is indescribable.However,as already said,nothing in this film is clichéd. It is highly recommenced to anyone looking for an original romance,and specially recommended to any cinephile.
