At first, a terminally slow and deliberate talky film - but once you manage to let it in, it pays off big time. Not to be seen on TV, if at all possible - you need a place where you can't just doze off
I loved the music and the silence. I loved the slow pace, like a very deep wound, that takes so long to heal. This movie leaves you scarred, and goes on living his secret life inside your wounds. Excruciatingly beautiful.
Oh, and I just adored the goose on the oil platform.
