Very slow, but totally engaging, with brilliant acting.

I saw this film at the New Zealand International Film Festival and really enjoyed it. It is an extremely slow film, but I was never bored. The interaction between the caregiver husband and the wife suffering from a stroke and alzheimers was brilliantly acted and I was completely engaged with what was happening. With a surprise show of love at the end of the film, I walked out of the cinema knowing that I had seen a wonderful film that led me the think about the realities of true love and growing old.
