It is very pretty movie with the most beautiful proposal scene I've ever seen. The storyline, based on an effort of a young boy to find the answer on his pivotal question - which is "what's the purpose of life" - is not the most important thing in the movie. It was so good idea to make a movie about this kind of people - they are like beautiful lilies in the garden of potatoes. It is so homely and refreshing to watch their spotless minds and their straight thinking. Even though, I think it would be possible to make a better movie with all these components. I don't miss the movements and actions here at all, it would be different world then, but I think they are some scenes on the very border of what the cliché is, sometimes the border is even slightly crossed, to my opinion. They are some blind moments as well, and finally, one or too minor plot lines added into the story would be nice spice anyway, with the same slow development maintained. But it is definitely worth to see it.
