A masterpiece, a seed planted in a rich bed of doubt.
17 August 2011 | by mulgawire-1See all my reviews

This is a masterpiece. So exquisitely written and directed is the narrative and characterisation that it isn't until the very last scenes that we realise all we've been led to believe is untrue. Once you get it, like all the grieving townsfolk in the cortège, you have to review everything you saw to understand the brilliance of the light you've just seen. This film could only have been made within a totalitarian state. Distilled over years of censorious rejections, it had to get past the punishers and straighteners before it could be made. Only then, did these blinkered bureaucrats understand and appreciate the craft of the creative people behind and in front of the camera. See it and weep.
