This film deals with the uncomfortable topic of incest, yet it is a credit to the director that he conveys the story with grace and subtlety. i saw this film with my wife in a semi-crowded room. most of the ladies and a few elderly men left the room early on, probably assuming that nudity and/or sex will follow onscreen (ours being a prudish and conservative nation). but they had underestimated the filmmakers. there is no explicitness, and yet u don't feel cheated, because of the style with which the film is shot. we have nothing but praise for this movie.
