To be fair, I haven't seen many foreign films (I'm from the US), but this is something special, and not like too many other films I've seen.
Without spoiling anything, I will simply say that this is a film with a distinct and consistent style, which is very refreshingly different from most romance films. It is ultimately a very nice drama, and well told at that! Yes, it's a romance but it makes for an interesting watch even if the viewer was looking for an interesting drama.
The casting here is excellent, and I was struck by the captured realism depicted from the very first couple scenes, which merely depict the primary character as a regular person with a regular story. The story is character-focused, and it is quite satisfying to watch it all play out.
I can easily recommend this film to anyone.
