a film that changes your life
22 May 2007 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

hi there,... before watching that film in Rotterdam, I didn't know what to expect. I heard a lot about that movie from press and friends but I went out before that film finished, thinking that I wasn't really interested in it (or i didn't feel in the mood). But then I realized that I couldn't stop thinking about the images the old man and the atmosphere. I was caught in this movie. and I still had them in my mind a couple of days. Without knowing where that all came from. That impressed me and I went in again on another festival and stayed until the end. It was absolutely worth it! It's incredible how subtle the film/the actors/the camera/the way of directing tears one into this very personal world and transforms the whole banality into a deep and intense (not only filmic)experience. You need to sit and wait a bit, but after 15 or 20 minutes your part of it. I really like to apologize for not being patient enough the first time!

I as well had the chance to attend a q&a afterwards. The director found beautifully words to explain it. You really feel that he and his camera woman live for that way of telling stories,... 100% sensitivity!
