It makes you wonder what is before/after, what is happening beyond the screen. Its simplicity encourages you to intertwine your memories with the (few) fictional events/plot elements.
To be engaged is a precondition to understand this movie. This also sets the bases for the credibility of the fictional reality we experience (and not just 'witness').
A precious example of slow/contemplative cinema.
This film feels like a documentary. While watching the film, I had to remind myself that I was, in fact, watching a fictional film with an intended narrative. The narrative is so seemingly unstructured that it follows the rhythms of life.
Kudos to the child actor! This must be THE BEST performance by a child pulled off on screen. Don't know how the director has done it.
And what beautiful visuals!
Es un filme honesto, preciso, con una mirada fresca y una aproximación a la relación padre hijo sin los estereotipos de los filmes comerciales. Padre e hijo biológicos (en la realidad) evidencian un nexo profundo, marcado por una situación más horizontal que vertical, con una amplio espectro de libertad y de inteligencia del padre para con el hijo.
La frescura de las actuaciones es un acierto del director.
