Somersault by Cate Shortland (2004)

Rarely does it happen that I see such a beautiful film. Apparently, it is easier to find such gem if we drift away – off the beaten track of European and American films. “Somersault” is an Australian feature made in 2004. As its poster boasts, it was part of the official selection of both Cannes and Toronto festivals back in 2004.

The strongest aspect of this film is coldness in watching a nice looking girl collapse and then gather together. In emotions, in feelings, in life.

Great watch.
