I liked it, but I didn't connect
on 20 November 2010
.... Which is probably my problem because the world depicted was so very "perfect". It was almost as if it was not made for me and that some transgression had resulted in my viewing it.
The cinematography was very beautiful and I appreciated the economy of dialogue that allowed me to concentrate on the "feel". And the feel is very central. It is a film that invites you to connect with it's culture and beauty, but I could not. That's just me.
It is a melodrama which is rare these days and although I didn't fall for it I would recommend it.
