A beautiful change of rhythm
I loved this movie. It's a rare piece of cinematography opening immediately with amazing photography and very well pondered silences that enrich the scenes and take you to a slower pace, a pace that needs your attention and presence. This is what this movie does, it leads you through some "breathing exercises". We all breath everyday but when we focus on breathing all of the sudden it becomes more deep and important. Everyday motions acquire meaning and beauty when we change our frenzy rhythm into mindfulness. Hawaii is portrayed just as it is and so are the people in the movie. Yet it never resembles a documentary rather a poem. The plot is marvelous, surfacing a bit at a time until the final disclosure. Music and the creation of one's inner song are central. I highly recommend this movie if you are searching, if poetry and ore music makes sense to you, if you see silence as beauty.
