A wonderful movie about loneliness...
12 April 2002 | by (Napoli, Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie is a wonderful, successful attempt to describe loneliness. The whole movie is pervaded by a melancholic atmosphere of sadness and desolation, contributed to by even the smallest details.

If you like action, if you consider silence just boring, if you want a frantic-paced story that does not give you the time to reflect, this movie is definitely not for you.

But if you are looking for poetry, you will really love this movie. I do.
