The time stopping of the city at a certain day of the year does not refer to the Warsaw uprising. Twice a year in Korea they practice evacuation drill for all citizens in preparation for an attack from North Korea. See more »
Castaway on the Moon is a beautiful film about self-made reality and what is actually real, about our infinite connection to the natural world, and how nothing is ever final even when it seems so. Although the mainstream man will squirm and sigh at certain scenes where love is apparent, it is a part of the human world and this movie, so if you cannot handle it then it is not for you. I almost feel like not everyone is worthy of this movie. It has many instances of magical realism and fantasy. The atmosphere reminded me of Amelie. I would give it a 12 if I could.
This movie is a gift, watch it.
