Literally blurred and unfocused personal childhood drama with barely defined characters, repetitive and redundant imagery that strives for poetry without achieving any, a rather thin and forced, though potentially interesting narrative and a strongly unwelcome naivety regarding the serious political circumstances the pic's set in.

A movie you'd like to like more than you do.
I doubt this pic may be awarded any "premio", but the plot might have served as the basis for a solid short.
