As i am becoming more interested in foreign films, i am continually amazed at the high quality of some of these films, especially the European ones. I am not a big fan of Asian movies, but this one scores a high on my list.
This isn't a fast film at all, which is great, as it captures the detailed makeup of these characters and their connections with ones another. Some can be too slow, but this had a steady pace giving great depth into their emotions and everyday lives. This is one aspect I like about foreign movies, attention to detail.
I am not overly keen on gay relationships, but this film was still a good watch providing some insight into gay couples and their decisions about families and children.
Overall it was a good movie. Worth watching again.
The acting was great too.
