Death is always peaking here. Beautiful colors, photography and ambient soundtrack. The actors' performances were also very good. It's a nice little movie that doesn't try to be much. That shows in the simple dialogues that sometimes come off as artificial. However, there's a terrific streak of sublime scenes at the end.
Beautiful, minimal and naturalistic vignette on the timelessness of youth and the slow dark ripples that effect a community dealing with a tragedy. It's a subtle approach and while there are a few clunkier moments performance-wise, this is a strong film. 3.5 stars
Everyone's acting like this film is a study of *something* but I can't see much of that. I see "beautiful" Sundance-y-natural-photography, and the subject of death, which is always present (a friend dies, they find dead dogs, they keep playing with a gun). But the ending did speak to me: a little gesture of love at the right time can disband a tornado.
