I just love when such beautiful peaces are born. This movie will make you thoughtful most of the time. It's about richness of our imagination and solitude - how exquisite they can become and what dangers lies behind them. "I'm here because people fear what they can't understand" - this thought from the picture touches so delicate and current problem. How easy it is for us to push otherness to the edge of the community, how hard it is to just listen in someones inner voice.
All scenes are wrapped in heart-touching music and really good camera shots. Acting is on very decent level.
Do not expect adventure into some fantasy world... It gets so much better...
It's journey into the unconditional love and the courage to fight for vanishing values.
Definitely worth watching.
