Simple and true
19 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie, albeit slow, contains a lot of universal humanistic aspects. The power isn't in the acting, direction or camera work, it's the combination of these that brings a lot of soul to the screen. This is what I would personally call a film which contains wisdom. It has been a real treat viewing this, even though I remained critical of its direction. Once you get used to the pace of it, you'll get dragged along.

A friend recommended I should see this, so I did. The 'ZEN'-shot of one of the car mechanic companies did not surprise me, and the many references to Kung Fu and Eastern philosophies were great. You should try to watch this film without too much criticism. Then it's definitely worth it.

To summarize, I admire this film's innocence. Minimal script, minimal acting, minimal direction. It leaves a lot to the imagination, a real feast if you're open to it.
