I absolutely love the cinematography of this film! Especially the emphasis on simple and subtle acts/movements like the girls' arms touching, back shots of them undressing / putting a skirt on, tying their hair into a ponytail, etc. There's tension from subtle admiration. Visually poetic!
Beautifully visionary, indescribably moving tale about girl's solitude, pain, love & flying dream. Breathtaking cinematography by Dominique Colin is, repressenting Sangaile's unstable heart picturesquely, essential to this & Skinny, delicate Julija Steponaityte as Sangaile makes me cry all the time. Blue sky, where is what truly I am. Superb, just superb.
The actress who played Auste delivered a great performance (would give 5 stars just for her) which I couldn't say the same about the one who played the main character. Film is full banalities, otherwise great cinematography and in general visually beautiful. I found Sangaile as a character to be quite unpleasant, not sure if that was the intention.
You know those films that spoon feeds you on everything? Well, you can't have that from this movie. It really is about chasing dreams on those fruitful teenage years. Along with exploring one's sexuality. But this is not “Blue Is The Warmest Color” and sex is barely a highlight for that matter. I find the film somewhat abstract and poetic. It's visually beautiful. But the script could have been improved.
2,5 too much of sweet for my taste but I probably would have loved this film if I had seen it when I was a teenager. The dialogue is poor and there are some holes in the script, for instance I was curious to know more about both girls' relationship with their parents, especially Auste's
Visually a great film. Several scenes stand out as having great cinematic style. The mood, as well, is very enjoyable. It captures that wonderful summer-youth feel, and it does so without ever feel ungenuine. The narrative is where the film falters. It's not a bad story, but the second act is messy and reaches for many beats, never really hitting them.
