Unbelievable rise of the Macedonian cultural sensibility
The Great Water represent an absolute summary of the emotional values that Macedonian literature has given us for centuries. An outstanding performance and adaptation of the novel, originally written for children. The structure of the film, unintentionally follows the smooth fabric of Zhivko Chingo's structural approach in writing, and that is something that really amazes me. This is an unbelievable rise of the Macedoian cultural sensibility in means of presenting the potential through a wider view, in a western way, but yet so familiar and authentic. I think that all movie lovers, esp. those enjoying the films of Steven Spielberg, David Lynch and Wim Wenders will love this film, since the film line has similarities to these authors, but, again it is totally authentic.
