After seeing this movie, my friend told me why he liked this movie so much. He said it was because the characters in this movie symbolized very well the situations of some countries. After he explained it to me, I came to realize that this movie has a skillfully-structured, multi-layered story. That's just one of many good things about this movie, because, more importantly, I think it also succeeds in another level. I said that because I had already loved this film wholeheartedly before I was told about the symbol systems in it. I think this movie represents very well the essence of feelings some people experienced in their childhood. The agony, the pain, and some undescribable feelings of the boy and the girl, especially during the second half of the film, really appeal to me. All these feelings of the characters bring back the memory of my childhood. I feel like I want to reach out my hands to the boy and the girl. I feel like I want to tell them that I once felt the same way too. I wonder how the director can successfully convey feelings like these to the audience. I really respect and admire this director. Moreover, I completely love the ending of this movie. I feel it is very appropriate to end like this. This movie is great in both the symbolic level and the emotional level. I hope I will have a chance to see other works of this director in the future. This movie has proved that Zoran Solomun has the potential to be the world master.
