Elegant compassionate modern and articulate
This movie was shortlisted in the Best New Directors Finals at the Sao Paulo International Film Festival 2003 and in my opinion it should have won. It is a very original movie, complex and very articulate in its narrative. I am remarkably impressed by its tone and quality. An awsome film.
