I watched this movie at the Berlinale (Berlin Film Festival) earlier this year and the movie struck a chord with me. Not the theme/story of the movie, but the way it was filmed and (dare I say?) edited. For some the word edited might be as far a stretch as to call this movie fast moving. It'll even be an understatement to say it's slow moving, so be warned!

The shots are long (watching a character moving from the left screen edge to the right screen edge and beyond might be tough for some viewers. But after the initial resent at the beginning of the movie and if you can let yourself indulge the tranquility of the film, you might enjoy it! Just don't expect anything fancy or anything major revealing (plot twists etc.) and you'll have a nice, quiet and pleasant viewing. While it dares to be different (as some other movies, that I have voted in a more bad way), this does not only promise us something, but it delivers.
