a relaxing, unusual, slow-paced romance
29 November 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Shot in a usual village-setting, no glamor, no special dramatic effects, this movie displays love, grief and sensibility in a rather uncommon way; it deals with real people (or at least it has a strong tendency of emphasizing realism), real routine and day-to-day situations, where you don't really have the "femme fatale" or the hero.

Markus, the main character is the real mystery here. Some questions the viewer might be asking him/her self during this movie: what does Markus want? what does he think/feel? One of the great pluses for this movie lies within this character's psychology, since it often hard to understand where he's going with his actions and most importantly why. That is what brings the viewer to the end of the movie, through the long shots that could be considered almost dead-boring if it weren't for that true curiosity of finding out what happens next.

So: do we find out? In the end, it is really a mystery, a question of "fate". I found the epilogue of great effect and a good means to emphasize the essence of what we -as an audience - witnessed through this nice, quaint little romance.
