Another nomination for Oscar's Best Foreign Language Picture, and a worthy one, at that. According to the opening credits this is based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel, which I find quite fascinating. Ancient storytellers in a modern medium. This is a love story that changed their collective culture, and until the end credits, I thought it was an ancient story, but the events actually took place in 1987, which only gave an added depth of wonder to the whole story. The acting was superb, the story was intricate and simple, all at once. It was a wonder, and I give it a 9 (superb) out of 10.
