Excellent art film, not to be missed.
3 April 2000 | by jgristSee all my reviews

This is a true "art" film, it has great depth and insight, but doesn't give the viewer a clear story-line to follow or any help at all such as side comments or scene setters. The film is a virtual feast of expert filmmaking in all its facets, especially the fine framing of the scenes, truly natural acting and sound work second to none. How many filmmakers could make a short scene in a plane and the subsequent landing on the runway a filmic event of such beauty it will be long remembered.

I think this film is one not to be missed
