3-4. This movie has a master's handle on the cinematic toolkit; the way it's able to evoke using space, light, color, and music in such a way that the function rings clear almost every time is astounding to take in. That being said; I'm ambivalent about the agency that comes from grief-based narratives, and the depth of the characters outside the heroine. But still, just a gut-punch all around, this one.
8.5/10 (03. 06. 2017). re-watched the film after 4-5 years with the first time, i feel myself so sick when i had meant about this masterpiece so underrated. the magic by Krzysztof Kieślowski and his faith, feeling, merger of music and movie are close to my fav Bergman.
