A rare gem which brilliantly exposes its timely themes
This is an outstanding film. It touches upon urgent, important and often taboo themes, seldom explored. And it does so in a brilliant way, without shocking or alienating the audience, something the themes themselves usually do. Technically and artistically, the film is uniformly excellent. The plot is very good, and its ending is surprisingly refreshing and very unexpected.
