The longest hour and a half of my life. This filmmaker seems to delight in closeup shots that linger endlessly on people's faces. There is little action in this film and little dialogue. But what was most troubling was the minimalist approach to plotting. It's left to the viewer to draw conclusions and attempt to figure out what's happening and why. Character motivations are generally obscure. The two little kids are adorable, but unless you're a major fan of home movies of cute children, the long, long segments of kids being kids rapidly get boring. This is the kind of movie that some critics will praise for its artsiness, but the general public will find tedious and dull.
