Quotes

Fr. Zeitlinger: Seems you're alone. You're not. Even now, He's taking your hand and guiding you by a way you cannot see. If you're unhappy, you shouldn't take it as a mark of God's disfavor. Just the contrary. Might be the very sign He loves you. He shows His love not by helping you avoid suffering, by sending you suffering. By keeping you there. To suffer binds you to something higher than yourself, higher than your own will. Takes you from the world, to find what lies beyond it. We are not only to endure ...

A subtle degree of existentialism which grows on you the longer the movie runs
24 January 2016 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

It takes a while of watching the movie before starting to appreciate it. However, the longer you get, the more it starts growing on you. Its modernistic style is certainly not for everyone - but the combination of beautiful pictures and captivating music as well as the subtle messages of the flick, is in my opinion brilliant. As with many modernistic pieces it requires that you as a spectator participate, which is very giving, that is, if you actually do it. Then you will experience the emptiness we as human beings have to wrestle with: the apathetic nature of just following the flow: the slumber we experience the moment we stop being active and stop shaping our existence. The movie is a reminder not to fall in slumber, but to wake up and see the pearl.
