Feature Film

The best single film I saw in the entire Cannes Film Festival.  A Genuine Treasure!

Roger Ebert – Chicago Sun-Times

This film had many top critics in raptures, Roger Ebert said, “by the end, if you are like me, you will feel that something transcendent has taken place”.

Geoff Andrews from Time Out described it as “a profound essay on the fragility and worth of experience with startling performances of real honesty”.
