Reminds me of Vermeer painting.
The measured pace and elegant imagery of Leland Orser's initial effort as a director, combine with wrenchingly and intensely real acting to lead the viewer/participant through a journey into a hellish place.
In ways, it reminds me of what David Lynch attempted to do in "Inland Empire" but is, in my opinion, a far more successful effort.
Jeanne Tripplehorn's acting is exceptional, as is Orser's and that of Laura Linney.
The stillness and pace of the film elegantly match the pace and emotional return of the lead characters from the edge of death, wherein the surviving parents are tempted to be reunited with their dead child.
Morning (Mourning) is a truly stunning film.
