Different, but not ...
18 May 2010 | by theo-litaSee all my reviews

Saw it on DVD my parents got on their holiday. Really cool, calm and collected, about nothing yet about everything.

Rare stuff and considering its 2008 I reckon the makers realized the trouble their country was in at the time. Which makes up for that tiny synt-sound in the otherwise good soundtrack which was the only thing that troubled me. For days I was thinking about this movie.

The landscape, if I could live in a place like this, so remote, so quiet and so pretty and rough. I don't know much about performances or what goes on behind the camera, but these guys know what they are doing. So real.
