After seeing this beautiful, mesmerizing piece at the Fantasy Filmfestival in Germany I was quite shocked that it was actually written, directed and shot by students! The beauty, sensitivity and magic of this film are rarely found in European cinema these days. The images of vast and haunting beaches, the great music, the subtle use of supernatural elements and the very good acting show a great amount of talent, dedication and truly cinematic taste! The story is simple, but has something fable-like and universal to it - and the little boy that plays the lead is very good!
