Truly the best thing I've seen in a LONG time...
1 June 2001 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is really a film that got me moved, amazed and demanded empathy without much effort. Joanou hasn't been my all time favourite director, but he managed to get himself at my list of favourites at once (along with Stone, Wenders & Luhrman). First of all, the story and the way it was brought pulled the right emotional strings with me. Above that, the fact that Joanou really has a superb eye for photography/cinematography, the fact that he uses different film stocks and mixes colour with black and white and a variety of film speeds, resulted in my enormous admiration for this movie. This is really the best movie I've seen in a very long time!
