One of the most profound and powerful films I have ever seen!
26 March 2000 | by (Portland, Me, USA) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that it several hours long and there is almost no dialogue, this film is absolutely compelling without a slow or boring moment in it. It is a hypnotic and deeply moving tribute by Hurwitz to his wife but more than just a personal statement, it is a essay on the meaning and impact of life on society.
