Loved this movie
19 December 2014 | by ks jkSee all my reviews

I saw this at a festival and loved it. You have to pay attention, it's a dramatic story, but told in a very subtle way. While on the one hand it has a very intense subject matter, it's about so much more. There's a lot going on here. It looks beautiful, and the actors are so good. It is a strange love story, in a way. But one we can all relate to, even if we don't really want to. It brought me back to movies like Betty Blue, but also ones like Spectacular Now. The cinematography is also beautiful. The setting is in the countryside, and you really get the sense of nature, but also of the movie taking place in its own little world. I really enjoyed the music too. I recommend this highly.
