A Man returns to the place he was grown. He meets his female friends from his "younghood" in the villa nearby, and the movie starts to solve the history of relationships between the man and those women (which are sisters).
In the film there should've been more cutting. It is nice when public has time to think during the movie and solve by themselves the history of this relationshipweb, but the scenes are too long. However some secenes are so beautiful that they are like paintings.
For my generation (i have borned in the 1980's) this movie can be too difficult to process. The matters which the movie handled, didnt touch me, and it was hard to catch the viewpoint of the characters.
Five stars out of ten.
