Ida wanna see it again

Beautiful film. In my top 10 films of 2014.

Absolutely stunning!

I think it is an absolute masterpiece!

Live life

A beautiful, sad film about lives not lived and the burden of the past. It feels unusual to see such a simple, powerful film in 2014. The black and white cinematography expresses so much. The ending is not what you expect.
