Superbly moving, intensely personal film
12 May 2005 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The reader should understand that I attend multiple film festivals a year; an average year for me means viewing, with critical eyes and ears, approximately four hundred foreign and independent films. Of the thousands of films I have seen over the decades, this film is one of only four that I have felt the need to view more than twice.

The human condition radiates herefrom more brightly even than the projection-lamp that illuminates the screen herewith.

Madness and wisdom commingle to varying degrees in each significant character.

If the reader is willing to work a bit and not be a merely passive audience, the rewards this film has to offer are manifold.
