User Reviews

 
Beautiful. Touching. A world of emotion in the faces.
19 November 2013 | by thunderfoot1812See all my reviews

I too am surprised this gem currently only has 7 stars.

This movie is a perfect example of our universal shared understanding of the nature of attachment and love. The classical music score and the sound of the voices of the young actors transcend the language. The underplayed but extremely moving acting leaves us wanting to know more about these people. We are hugely on their side.

This is the antithesis of a movie chock full of plot and devices; it is rather bare-bones perfect in the references it makes. It's all done with acting and camera-work, and pacing. What we don't need we don't get. It's like a minimalist Shakespeare play.

What you *will* see are a collection of moments that just tug at your heart.

Expect this movie to stay with you for a long time.

What a great actress!
