Most insightful and prosaic film I've ever seen
7 December 2006 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Agree with the previous post.. this film is extraordinary and I'm amazed at the negative reactions here. I would rate it as my favourite film of all..

It's an incredible and subtle meditation on what means to be alive, to be human, to love. To be human and to be confronted by this fragmented, alienating, disturbing modern existence .. with our lives and interactions largely filtered through technology and our experiences so far removed from those of our ancestors and those before.

I was provoked and amazed by this piece of work - and I'd urge anyone who wants to be challenged to see it.

James
