"A work of unostentatious beauty and uncloying sweetness, at once sophisticated and artless..." - J. Hoberman, the Village Voice

Like watching a dream...the ghosts of dead relatives appear, a long lost son returns as a monkey spirit, a fable of an aged princess and a magical catfish is recalled...and all through the characters move closer to death but without trepidation or hesitation but as another passage through this mystery called life.

A stunning work of magical realism.

A contemporary surreal dream of a film. Cinematography is innovative but not self-consciously stylish.

Very good!
