| Well worth the effort!
This one is definitely worth the effort of finding and watching. Although somewhat slow paced, this film is remarkable in it's simplicity and understated approach. It's essentially a 3 character drama, full of melancholy, laughter, symbolism, and nuggets of truth. briefly, it deals with the story of mankind, as it might have been in the beginning (although the period shown is not really defined, there are some references to contemporary times). Friendship, loyalty, pride, lust, envy, freedom and ownership are just some of the themes explored here. This is the kind of film that tends to stay with you long after it ends. If it is hard to find, don't's really worth it.
