An eternal chef-d'oeuvre
7 January 2003 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

A deeply sensitive introspection around the themes of presence and absence, memories, life, love, death and permanence. Not a movie to see, but sensations to live. Something about what can't be said or show. If you don't like it, your are only half living. If you like it, you are already half dead. A unique magical object. Sad and beautiful. Pure poetry.
