Subtle, deep and intelligent
5 May 2017 | by psmithbellSee all my reviews

This is one of the rare films that has many levels. Rather than give obvious clues to the character development and motivation, this film lets the viewer work at discerning the motives behind the characters' actions. There is little dialogue and not much action, yet the film is compelling and never slow. It is one that leaves you thinking about it long after. In particular, I wondered how culture, gender, class or individual experiences instigated the plot line.
