This is what cinema was made for
24 August 2001 | by (Bad Aibling, Germany) – See all my reviews

Best use of cinema's technical means to fantasize about magic and "ghosts" in everyday's world; where things begin to live, people change without reason and voices speak from outside. I guess the reason for the voices is a lyrical one, where you don't have to explain. Certainly a most personal work, capturing the magic of waves on the shore, adding a sense of marxism and melancholy. This movie changed my world.
