    I believe this movie to be a great teaching material for illustrating collectivistic cultures on the extreme.
    Additionally it has charming cinematography, soothing music and an authentic construct with theatre-like presentation.

    Just a stunning work of art.

    My wife and I watched this some time ago and it still comes back to us.

    Absolutely worth your time.
