This movie leaves lasting impressions of the beauty of nature, art, music and love
This is a well-directed movie, capturing the character complexity and feelings of the Lithuanian genius who is an extraordinary artist and composer at the same time. The love story with Sofija, who is also a remarkable and strong woman, adds to the charm of the film. The scenes showing the beauty of nature, cities and country sights from the genius' beloved country are intertwined with corresponding music and art. The viewer gets a sense that the internal light in the artist's paintings and music comes from his deep visions and feelings, influenced by childhood memories, images of forests and sea and the newly found love. Finally, the movie also manages to portray the local political context in a small country torn between bigger powers and its impact on lives of the main characters.
