A Masterpiece
27 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

I have seen no greater film than this so far.

It's sensibility to the conflict of people groups, as well as the personal experiences in the spiritual, intellectual and emotional are beyond any other film's treatment.

The actors live out the natural confusion on screen effortlessly. Ultimately, the way in which lives, yearnings, love and hate is weaved into resolution, beauty and peaceful reflection is unparalleled.

It's superb cinematic style makes the story not only brilliant; but a masterpiece in its entirety.

For a film that confronts, and questions much of your heart, mind and soul - I suggest seeing this as soon as you can.
