A warm bath on a cold winter day
23 January 2001 | by (Utrecht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Nicolas works on his father's farm. The work is hard, life is though and business is not going well, so Nicolas dreams of a different life. One day he agrees to give a woman (Maria) a ride. After he has dropped her off, he is more and more intrigued by his feelings for her. Nicolas' life takes different turns, and he meets Maria again. This movie is like a warm bath on a cold winter day: beautiful, simple, all about life and how it should be. The scenery is absolutely stunning, the acting adequate. The story is not too solid, but it efficiently makes you wonder, `What's life?'.
