The French use less words in comparison to English. Oddly some depth and compelling significance gets lost when translated from French to English. The French have an amazing way of expressing themselves, always have. From their artist to their philosophers they have always been able to say and express deep and meaningful compassion with fewer words.
A fascinating plus about this story is, it can be watched with no sound at all. Your imagination gets the message through and is profound to the minds eye. The art is raw and honest. Beautiful film.
