This film is technically perfect which allows for total immersion into the story told. The script is a masterpiece, acting superb and the omnipresent music an additional almost flesh&blood protagonist.
The title is a direct quotation from Leonard Cohen’s famous song, obviously.
It is a powerful cinema which is deeply thought through and very carefully executed. A magic story of a life long infatuation and going back in memory of a young woman who has to cope with two deaths in her close proximity and bravely carry on with her life.
An absolute must see for those idealists who still believe in the beauty and power of story telling through cinematic techniques – like myself.
