Lost but then found
8 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie as a kid, way in the past, and i had almost completely forgotten about it. Some part of it did always live with me though, and recently i got a chance to see the film again.

Im real glad now that i've watched it again after all those years. It's a gem of a movie, partly a tragedy and a tale of loss and despair; partly a puzzle that demands to be solved; partly a haunting mystery. In the end though the movie turns into a beautiful tale of friendship and salvation.

The film cares for it's difficult story, it uses subtlety and does not rush or exaggerate things. The lives and characters portrayed have a lot of richness, a universe of their own, which makes the whole thing very memorable; this would not have worked without the fine acting-performances either, which are an example, and also what makes the film work so well.

At times there seems to be no order to the story, and a lot of bizarre things happen on the way, but ultimately the characters you care about find their way to their destination, as if something were guiding them. They were once lost but then found.
