A wonderful movie
26 October 2001 | by gannerSee all my reviews

I have now seen this 3 times, and get more out of it with each viewing. The ensemble cast are marvellous, and the viewer is exposed to the whole range of emotions. A sad, but beautifully "rounded off" ending, too. Wonderfully scripted - provided the subtitling is as good as the version I saw, on SBS television in Australia. One of my all time favourites.
