Disturbingly beautiful, full of stillness
9 August 2001 | by fvandammeSee all my reviews

I really loved this film. It is very Still, very Poetic and has an extremely beautiful and wonderful ending! The great thing of it is that you feel more than you see. The plot is just as small as the message of this masterpiece is great!
