A very touching drama that is brought to life via a subtle yet intimate directorial effort and via compelling performances that manage to say much with very little dialogue, but via facial expressions, little gestures and the like.

And all this turns the rather straight-forward plot of the film into a multi-leveled narrative. Again, not the most uplifting of films, but definitely worth your time.
