I recently saw this film at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and enjoyed it but the casual viewer should be warned... Watching a film of this type is very different from watching a common film. Here the plot and the characters develop slowly. There is plenty of fodder for introspection. Like life, there are also parts that you may never fully understand.
Overall the film is fascinating and I was drawn into it as much out of a sense of wonder, as out of the hope that it would start making sense. By the end parts do make sense and some parts don't but I wouldn't cut any of it.
