A meditative dialogue
2 December 2018 | by leomix-24269See all my reviews

This movie is like a meditation over time. You cannot watch this movie with expectation of what it may taught you about time. Instead, you should watch it without any expectation and just feel the visuals and sound. Everything is as real as it can be, and as touching as it can get. This is truly a masterpiece about time.
