Quotes

[first lines]
Leonard: [narrating] Landscape is destiny. I've carried that phrase in my head for years now. I can't remember where it comes from, but I know what it means here. It's a sense of being closed-in. Human limitation. It's different from the Midwest, where possibility sprawls bright and endless in every direction. People in the Himalayas, the Andes, do they live in the passive voice too, like their live aren't real? Their memories fixed, immutable?

Missing Parts
30 April 2018 | by JohnnyLee1See all my reviews

Interesting aspects but missing a core. Certain parts seem tamed down, especially teacher Leonard's story. He mostly just sits around reading. Dina's story not easy to understand. Guessed some of the historical story. Acting and production top notch. Accents not easy to understand. Basically I guess its very hard to like these people.
