Two Souls Meeting on a Spiritual Desert
10 December 2019 | by dennis-11345See all my reviews

Two souls meeting on what feels like a dry and uninviting desert. Staying with the film. Slowly following the arc of their learning. Slowly sensing how much of that learning is beyond their (and my) awareness. By the end, both are granted a moment of great depth.

As with The Souvenir (2019, Joanna Hogg), the film has a privacy and rhythm that doesn't make things easy for the viewer but that ultimately feels vastly more life-like than films that are constructed to appear life-like.
