This film might not be to everyone's taste, it is slow moving but like all good things it is worth seeing for the visual impact of the scenery alone. The film revolves primarily around two girls and their interaction between each other and their community. One girl(Unn) is set apart from the rest of her peer group, a loner who is befriended by Siss. As the story unfolds you gain an insight into Unn's character, after sharing a secret with Siss, instead of going to school the next morning Unn wanders off into the snow and disappears. I won't give away the ending of the film, but it is beautifully shot, there are a lot of allegorical references, and the continuity is superb. definitely one for your collection
