    I can't say I loved this film, but I can't say I disliked it either... It's difficult to categorize. It's difficult to put in a box. Very unique film. Unlike anything I've ever seen. Very lyrical and poetic. I would call it artwork. 4 years 6 months ago

    I totally understand why others find this film so powerful and moving. Unfortunately, it doesn't do the same for me. 3 years 8 months ago
