Stunning. This movie hit me hard and has made me re-think my direction in life. It moves slow but it’s beautiful and was worth every minute. So many subtle metaphors. Remarkable film.

A good story of loss and renewal found through the vicissitudes of life.

Pure Perfection. I may be a little biased having grown up in that part of the world so the huge majestic fig trees, background birdsong, wild decay, animals taking over the house and being at the mercy of natures whims brought a wave of nostalgia over me, but i think anyone will find this enthralling, melancholy, magical and supremely crafted
