a mystical movie about the treasures in life
22 October 2003 | by (Nijmegen, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie. It gives you the feeling of entering a new dimension where the distinction between reality and fiction gradually vanishes. The powerful images of a mystical garden are dream like. It takes you to a place where you feel it touches your innermost wishes of tranquillity and peace. A dream within a dream, a fantasy that becomes reality. Let this movie take you to a place you never imagined existed and enjoy the ride.
