perfection
25 July 2018 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

I had never heard of this film until something made me add it to my list of dvds to watch - where that came from is beyond me. Anyway, watch it I did and it is absolutely beautiful. It's a pleasure to watch, the scenery and surroundings are tantalizing, (how do I get there?) and the characters perfectly drawn. The story is slow moving but you don't want or need speed and even the music, which I rarely care about, complements the whole beautifully. The story is simple and meanders along working with the other factors. The cast are good, nobody is over-stated but one feels their emotions. I have been thinking about this movie all day - and recommending it, it's that good.
