Interesting movie, and a bit confusing at first, thought the scene leading up to the love incounter was a bit disjointed and dry. The film was herky jerky thoughout. All in all is was alright.
It started out slow, but had a dramatic turn-around three quarter of the way. Could have had a little more zip in the story.
Four stars until the last fifteen minutes of the film, which should have been edited down to five.
A very moving story. Great performances by both lead actors. I like this film because there is very little dialogue, so you have to rely on your own internal interpreter of some of the events. The setting is magnificent and well captured. Even the music was perfect.
Running Time: 110 min.
