Wow... This movie was wonderfully complex, sad and twisted in a beautiful way. There were things here that my divine nature can understand and my human frailty could not fathom. There is a strength in one of the characters that amazes and astounds me. This story is a powerful one. It's a question of love and forgiveness. This is truly remarkable not withstanding the excellent music, cinematography and pacing of the film which allows for reflection. This movie is not a shallow dip but a dive into the deep end of the pool. Look at this film with an open mind and an open heart.
