An underrated film
Oh, I’ve been waiting for this one for SO long, because I really wanted to talk about this: I LOVE this film. I love it, love it, love it and I LOVE the book that it’s based on even more. I’ve no idea why so many people have never heard of it, why those who have thinks it’s “pretty good…”, why it obviously didn’t get the right publicity; but as everyone says in these cases, maybe it’s better this way.
This scene that I’m posting is the first one I saw and there was this… something about it. I was instantly hooked; I don’t know if it’s the surreal imagery, the simple, yet ambiguously emotional moments, the quirky characters, or just my Eastern-Europe-y waking up for the first time in my life 😀 I watched it a lot of times since then, and read the book (which I highly recommend, and for which I will certainly save a post, if we ever get around to the Literature Challenge), and it’s just so strange and original and beautiful and funny and poignant and just SO smart.
I don’t know how many of my (4? last time I counted :>) readers will appreciate it, and whether they will find that certain it while watching it, but I certainly, certainly recommend both the film and the book.
