Audience Reviews for Yureru (Sway)

How selective is our memory? What this selectiveness says about ourselves? Minimalist. Groovy. Beautifully subtle movie.

An emotional examination of two brothers after their mothers death. Once a love rival comes between them things go from bad to worse. It's a slow paced and thoughtful film that really gets to the core of its characters. Unfortunately it also goes a bit too deep with some motivations spelled out with metaphors in dialogue that just repeat the visual motifs. At some points it also goes from slow paced to stalling, becoming a bit of an effort to get through as opposed to a introspective treat. Some excellent performances and subtle camera work keep interest for the most part.
