I finally watched all of this Slovenian New Waver, beginning to end. A wonder of visual beauty, innovative production and emotional suffering. Maruša is one of the finest characters in cinema. Shattering. As of May 2013, it is my recommendation to peers for this year. With further viewings, this may garner 5 stars instead of the 4 at this time. The film had me the moment of Peter's first dream, walking in the rain.
