Beautiful & Touching, 5 September 2006
Author: eyalt-2 from Israel

Well, I must disagree with the comment above. I was touched by the film and actually didn't feel as it was extremely melodramatic. The events occurring to the mother and son did not feel out of context but somehow gave the impression of an unescapable tragedy. The photography of the film is superb, and the whole mood of the film tends towards the a kind of reflective-surreal feel. If indeed one comes with some very practical-rational expectations from the film then one would be disappointed as the commentator above. This film is indeed not a thriller - events takes slowly to unfold, but it is very far from being boring (much less patience is needed than watching films of the likes of Kislovski or Tarkovsky :).
