Different, slower, no special effects and yet an intriguing movie
2 February 2012 | by (Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

A grieving artist is immersed in her art, memories and culture of her people. Her step-children are a bit annoying but we don't have to spend much time with them. Her boyfriend is patient and we're not sure why, yet we even that is explained as we get to know her. At first there is no life in her and you wonder if the movie is going to be worth it but as she comes to life she becomes enjoyable and someone you might want to know. It could be tedious but the blend of history, music, culture and painting is intriguing. Perhaps the break from explosions and the graphic special effects has its own charm. Whatever the reason, I enjoyed this unique story and was glad to have spent the time.
