True marvel
19 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A gem of simplicity and beauty. Maybe Austrian cultural experience brings more -- but first and foremost this is a HUMAN film, and an absolutely inspiring one at that. It's enjoyable to watch, but it really takes until the very end and then some sinking in after that to look back and become aware of the profound messages that it brings.

For some reason reviews need to be 10 lines of text now, despite all the previous excellent and helpful ones for this film being less. So we write some extra stuff here in hopes that that the kind moderator can remove them in interests of not clogging up the fine, pithy reviews for a fine, pithy film with a lot of unnecessary and burdening words.. :-)
