A girl grows, A girl cooks, and maybe your world won't feel the same ever again...
23 May 2016 | by Leex666See all my reviews

This is actually 2 films and the second part (Winter/Spring) is my favourite.

Most definitely one of my most loved films ever, I expect quite a few people will not get it and indeed I am shocked how little attention it has garnered.

It continues to haunt me now, weeks after, and after several viewings, it created such a slow burning set of emotions that even now I feel a lump in my chest when I think about... Just wonderful.

I am becoming a kind of disciple maybe, torn between trying to get as many people to see it and yet also fearing that most people may not get it, maybe I am in such a place right now that is resonates for me, while for others it just falls flat.

Don't watch if you need action and violence and sex, or a definite story with neatly tied up conclusions, though I found the ending satisfying and was enchanted by the traditional dancing.

What more is there to say, that would not needs hours or acres of screen space?
