i watched this movie yesterday and it was a very refreshing viewing. though i don't see how anybody could see the logic behind the young girl's actions and her reasons, i fell in love with the way the movie is wrapped about in the end. it all makes sense in a very abstract way. leaving you to savor the taste of the movie long after you have watched it. even though the first half is a bit unconventional the latter half adds up so much to the confusion. you fall in love with the 2 protagonist. the father and the daughter. and the way the final message that comes out of the movie, of forgiveness, unconditional love, and acceptance, is very beautiful and at the same time so tragic. you are torn between the girl's stupidity and grief and sorrow of a loving father. in the base both are a epitome of sacrifice for their beloved, and both show what unconditional love is. you will love it after you have watched it.
