beautiful friendship story delicately realized, 24 December 2008
Author: Giancarla Fanucci from Italy

My husband and I was very moved by what we saw at the Biennale and by the intelligence of how the camera was moving. It was like we were there already, in the landscape. The camera was completely transparent, no artificiality or melodrama. This beautiful friendship story was so delicately realized in the direction of the actors and the camera and the music that my husband and I were both in tears and in shock at the end. Especially the last shot!! There is nothing to manipulate the viewer's feelings, but the feelings come anyway, very slowly, they creep up on you. You feel so much for the characters but you are not asked to pity them. You feel so much compassion instead.
