Genuinely lovely
5 July 2012 | by raimund-bergerSee all my reviews

not sure though if the movie would appeal to international audiences. So many delicious subtleties might very well depend on original language and cultural context being understood.

This film is about defense mechanisms kicking in after a blow, namely a fraudulent husband killing himself and his wife subsequently trying to recreate the life she's been hoping to live, by means of ignorance. Or maybe not ...

Deeply human, original, wonderfully told and supremely cast. Haven't felt that well entertained in years. Really mean it.

Big round of applause, to writers, actors and production. Loved it!
