A simple, stark beauty - very well done
29 March 2003 | by (Milwaukee, WI USA) – See all my reviews

I would most highly recommend this movie. It is beautifully done and sets a touching and thoughtful mood. We happened upon this movie as In-flight entertainment returning from Ireland and were impressed by it's simple, stark beauty.
