lovely, deep film
26 November 2006 | by janbankeSee all my reviews

just saw this short documentary film at IDFA in amsterdam. very impressed. like in Iraq in Fragments, director Longley is doing something very rare and wonderful for documentary. he is creating a work of real cinema. film not only as document and information, but as art, as human expression - actually like expressionism in style.

this film is about a woman taking care of her ill son in Iraq, but is also about a lot more. it is a political film without being political on the surface. but all the layers are there -- there is a lot going on just below the surface in this film. another great work of the New Documentary Cinema!
