One wishes this film would just settle down and tell it's story instead of flitting around in a whirligig of murky lighting and choppy editing/camerawork. The characters aren't quite interesting enough to warrant surface detail alone. A lot of exposition if not narrative. Despite all that it's played with deftness.
A subtle (yet touching) story about a family in crisis living abroad. A little underwhelming at times, and much of its time was spent wandering in alleys instead of exposing the audience to more of the daughters' pass-times in their new, alien environment. Not exactly a necessary viewing, but certainly not a waste of time.
