sagacious pallet of human colour
8 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

A simple but brilliant storyline captured by what must be a vastly talented director. Wonderful camerawork and good acting. This is a thorough, deserving and most enjoyable film. It will no doubt remain a gem in the archives of the art-film.
