Depressing yet comforting tale about loss...
5 February 2018 | by imseegSee all my reviews

This movie makes me feel humble and in reverence. The subject of the story about a missing child is very delicately portrayed. Definitely not a popcornmovie nor is it a sentimental tearjerker. It is as real as it gets...

The story is about a couple who have lost their child and for months on end are at loss over the uncertaintity about the whereabouts of their child.

Meadowland is a real rough diamant, wrapped in breathtaking grief though, so only watch it if you are up for a lot of repressed and twisted emotions.

Meadowland is dedicated to the late father of the director. Is it the personal loss of the director's father that made this movie so heartwrenchingly beautiful? "Meadowland" really comes across as a personal tale of grief...

Meadowland easily found its way to my heart, because besides the grief there is healing to be found as well. And the healing part of the movie struck me as an uplifting, almost magical experience. For that reason I do want to recommend this picture very much...
