By lil' I mean not too many characters, so the few shown kindled a spark in the viewer to the warm and sensitive nature of the ones shewed. The background kept harking back to a grey and gloomy setting while in its stead we are back in the present and things look colorful and teeming with delicious flavor. The pall that seems to mingle with the theme really never is truly diminished yet the candor of the story really shines through and gives you a joyful almost singular start. You really want to see what this is all about but not so much you want to escape from the protagonists sojourn into his own profound escape. I just get a sense that things didn't pan out the way he hoped but in the bargain he seemed to get a lot more. Very introspective, very cold and bleak at times while others the moment seems to linger and resonate with all that is living in the moment. One line that strikes and jolts one out of apathy and self-imposed resignation, when his wife tells him, 'You are always living in the past'. It seems he was always so worried about all the possible things that could happen he sometimes forgot to simply let go and really give it your all in the nonce. The scenery was ample and sweet warming me at times and at others giving me slight chills; the score was eerie at moments and others it really tugged at my heartstrings pulling me thither and hither, whilst all the ancillary characters enriched the natural progression of the plot with stylistic courses; and finally a culminating to a glorious ending which for some reason seems to be the very beginning of the protagonist... Cool flix, recommend it.
