A beautiful film, both visually and in story ... stunning
We loved this film. In a time of fast action, surprise, and worst-case scenarios, this is a human drama about living, love, relationship, and truth. The cinematography is stunning. Warm, golden hues of a Swedish summer ... and a reminder of life outside of our current era of technology and speed.
A story of two people falling in love for who they are ... not titles. Many visual and cinematographic metaphors and allusions.
A beautiful and touching film.
