In a time where everything is so hectic it is good to see a proper film that is done in a way the films were done in the era of silent movies. The scene shootings are long, much appreciation is paid on lights on the faces of the actors...did I mention this is also black&white film.
Music and nature breathe, story goes on, the audience of this film is trilled by the skills of the director and cameraman. This film is a fresh breeze of something that many have forgotten in storytelling and movie-making among action-loaded movie-scenes that fills the screens and displays these days.
This movie is something quite different. My recommendations.
