Best of its genre

What a wonderful,touching love story has been placed on film by this great director. I had not expected to be so moved. The camera-work is superb and the viewer feels as tho they are eavesdropping, as indeed they are. When one forgets the camera is there, then this is a true masterpiece. We are caught up in these two people and their "forbidden" love and we share their pain. It is a work of art and I thank Zsolt Kedzi-Kovacs for managing to get this film to the public. Luckily, there is an interview with him on the DVD which was quite informative and which I thoroughly enjoyed. The two stars of the film actually did fall in love during production, from which a daughter resulted, so I think that is a lovely "personal touch" to this drama.
