Or at least try not to read much about the movie. As a friend told me, he had read the storyline and wasn't as moved by the movie, as he could've been. Since I hadn't read anything about it, I wasn't preoccupied. And I can only tell you, that it really is a very good movie!

It's lyrical, it has poetic touches, it's dramatic, it's funny, it will take you on an emotional journey, if you don't get distracted by a few (minor) flaws. Beautifully shot and edited, this movie has some great actors, playing their parts very convincingly. Let this tale take you on a emotional trip and you won't regret it!
