Where did she go?
She became ashes and left with the wind.
And her soul?
Her soul... was tied with the heart of a bird.
And the tread will hold forever?
Until the bird's heart breaks.

It was 2 weeks before my birthday. I was looking for possible gifts then I stumbled across this film and I was intrigued. It arrived on my birthday and I was over the moon. The first five minutes were interesting, then when the film progressed it became very interesting. Björk was wondrous as the role of Margit, the other actors not as much, but still good.
Now being a fan of Björk, here comes my Björk rant. After watching this I had to listen to Vespertine (one of her best albums) and then Medúlla (her best album.) If you enjoyed this film I suggest you check out Dancer in the Dark and the albums Medúlla, Vespertine and Homogenic.
