After the death of his cat, Max has a repeated dream in which he meets a mourning girl. He is convinced she is real, and meets a look-alike, who is too.
15 July 2010 | by ewevrijSee all my reviews

The reviews on the film are mixed. The ethereal, romantic character is beautifully filmed, in a controlled pace, that reminds of a Bach piece made into a ballet. Almost every element, be it a setting, dialog, plot element, scene, music piece, is repeated a couple of times in the film in one or more variations, or developments, or contra-points but still recognizingly the same element, as a musical composition with variations would be made like. In the end they come together in 1 sad, romantic and yet hopeful finale.

For some that finale is too much. It all comes too neatly together. Personally I loved it. It is not often such truly romantic films get made.It's by now means cardboard romantic, far from it. No need of a handkerchief, no unbiased happy end, but there is sadness, mixed with sparkles of humor and joy, and a the most truly gripping kissing scene i've seen in years. No sex, no sensation, but stylish feelings, ballet like scenes, and admirably intense acting, put together in a tasteful timeless piece.
