Treasure
5 June 1999 | by (Nijmegen, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Every time I see this movie, my love for it grows. It is one of my treasures on VCR. It confronts you with life and living life, but not in a cynic way, which is often the case in film and literature. It shows the beauty and mystique of this world without being pretentious. The movie contains a great sense of humor, because humans are strange creatures with funny methods of approaching life and how they try to make sense of it. You have to love them for it, in spite or because of the mistakes they make.
