A sensitive movie about life and death
28 November 2010 | by kesslerdorisSee all my reviews

I saw the film yesterday at the local Filmpodium that is sponsored by the Town of Zurich and I was touched by its quietness and restrained atmosphere and the complex story line. It shows a seemingly intact little village in a seemingly untouched mountain area. It portrays a small world filled with angst and hidden feelings. The actors are excellent and the beautiful women and the Italian language contrast with the reduced setting. The music is artful and very decent though most of the time dialog and stillness dominate the film. It is the perfect film for an audience that prefers Alain Tanner, Francis Reusser, Claude Goretta to commercial film makers.
