A gentle love, and the bigotry hits them like a mallet.
Violence, gossip and politics (upcoming ballot).
Though at times the story’s slight,
The film excels visually (use of light,
Plus a gorgeously joyous colour palette).
Time, loss and grief (with its profound feeling of sinking).
Watching, there were fluctuations in my thinking:
From 'I'm gonna cry. Where's my hankie?'
To 'Ugh, now this feels wanky.'
To me, a misstep: sheeted neighbour, with memory shrinking.
A perfect film. Unforgettable, in ways most profound.
Beautiful story of two who are inexorably bound.
'they're ridiculous?': the best line.
Exquisite framing. Superb use of music and sound.
