A well composed film with strong aesthetic values, a relatively minimalist mise-en-scene, and a mature, nuanced narrative. Appears South American, in spite of Canadian ties, and falls in line with South American cinematography more so than Canadian. The still frame, long-take aesthetic is certainly one more celebrated by international cinema than Canada proper.
75/100 – Very Good. (3.5)
Five star + more & more & more. Simple, minimal family's everyday portrait but fulfilled with many irreplaceable moments I don't want to forget for life. Each sequence, because of its fragmentality without excessive information, connects organically & shine with each color, which always makes me cry. For me, this is perfect film about life.
