Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

The movie is told in a non-linear fashion; many scenes are flashbacks, and only context distinguishes flashbacks from scenes in the present. Flashback scenes are often shown in 'parts' and not in chronological order. Also, while the story takes place over a period of eight years, all of the scenes take place during winter, with frequent snowstorms, for dramatic effect.
