Exquisite Lithuanian film
31 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Great acting, interesting script and a structure easy to fallow.

If you're looking for a drama that reflects precisely on the eastern everyday life and a little more then this film is for you. It had what I look for in a drama - the display of plain beauty/horror of life and no pushed emotions. But without making it long and dull.

I found it similar to London to Brighton and Oranges and Sunshine.

It is a European production that keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has an ending with an emotion. You will not be bored or feel like you've waisted your time.

My only criticism would be the occasional poor camera work.

(This is my first review, hope it's useful.)
