Sad but beautiful piece of artwork
18 June 2013 | by gabriel-tandilSee all my reviews

While not what I expected to see, I liked.

It is closer to poetry than to traditional film, and I expected more emphasis on the characters and the story.

It's a beautiful job well done, in my opinion, despite a large sadness in its content, but I will not reveal details of the plot so I will say no more.

Sometimes I feel like hard to follow considering the changes in the Timeline, which anyway does not prevent understanding of the work.

Otherwise it's a movie out of the ordinary (as planned: crow-funding, Spanish production spoken in English and filmed in Russia, etc.).

The places are very interesting and the environment, in my opinion very well done. It also has a good soundtrack.
