06 Apr 08

A Complex Tale of Human Emotion With a Twist

This is a most intriguing film, using as it does two viewpoints ro create what could be called a tragedy of errors. The young woman with the imagination on full throttle who mistakes the meaning of her sister's interactions with the young gardener makes a decision to act in a way that impacts those around her in a way greater than she could ever imagine.

And an ending you cannot see coming that is, despite some peopel's doubts, part of real events in history.
