wow, it's been a while since i have seen any great film lately. this is quite some sweet surprise as i didn't have any idea what it's all about. i thought of the setting as quite bland and too cold and the weather too harsh...but dang, i was so moved as the story is unfold.
i'm not gonna put in any spoilers but the parallelism beweeen the two teen characters is just so greatly woven.
the ending is cathartic. i was left speechless for a while. great images abound too.
