Florence Loiret Caille,
I saw this film at the Berlin film festival February 2005. The film leaves many things untold as the plot unfolds. After the film the director and the lead actress answered questions from the audience. One man was very annoyed that things were not explicitly explained in the film, and accused the director of not knowing his own story. The director replied that he preferred to leave some of the story to the viewers imagination - a cheering audience seemed to agree.. All in all the film tells an interesting little story, but about what? The protagonist - a 30-year old woman living with her brother and his wife
suffers from some kind of mild mental illness, taking medicine and
smoking strong cigarettes. How can she get better in such a little crap town?.. Definitely worth seeing.
