What an experience!
26 March 2008 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I see this film as a research into purity of the form. I endured, I cried, I loved and now worship the experience into the lives of these three sisters: lost in the middle of nowhere, in a place that seizes to exist. The final message is painful, you leave the cinema with a ball into your stomach, you are left speechless and drained, and you hate even more the difficult world we leave in. But then, a day after the film is still with you, and then you start to process and understand the beauty and the meaning the film left you with. I am sick and tired of instant experiences, instant highs and pleasures. Content makes us what we are, and is content that films should offer us. Loved the film!
