    My personal favorite film and it has been since I first saw about seven years ago. This is where I sat up and realized the potential and possibilities of film as something that could be artistic and meaningful. After I saw this, it kickstarted my craze over film. Collecting and watching films (at home and in the theater) has become my greatest passion. It opened so many doors for me and I have discovered so many gems. There are certain films where, if I just see a still from the movie, I get overwhelmed with feelings and remembrances. This is one of them for me. 6 years 10 months ago

    Bottomless romantic tension, lush colours, exacting cinematography, a very 'unspoken' score...very good... 9 years 7 months ago

    A love story for an adult that has actually experienced love and all its bittersweet disappointments and dead-ends. Would have to disagree with the poster below me, of all WKW's films, this is his masterpiece. 10 years 1 month ago
