This is one of the most amazing films I have ever seen.
I saw it in Milan in September 2006 and it became one of these very rare moments where I felt an electric force with the people sitting next to me in the theatre.
We all sat glued to the screen as the story unfolded and I realised I was watching something very very special.
The script is superb, the performances are amazingly natural, the hand-held camera is flawless and the editing is super-slick.
All things considered, this film effectively blew my mind.
The fact that it is 45 minutes long may not suit traditional time slots.
But this film is as long as it needs to be.
I hope you are as lucky as me and get to see it.
