When the title menu came up, there was no special feature. This was an indication to me that the movie would suck. What a shock I was in for. The film is just what the summary is. I could maybe add one more line for the ending. It is a deeply emotionally mature and sensitive film that blends eloquent film-making with a writer's sensitive rhythm to words and silences, all perfectly executed with the most awesome performances from the actors, director, and film crew. My wife started sobbing as she talked about it. She's artsy and never sobs over films. It was THAT moving.
