A simple concept for a film that beautifully and heart-breakingly opens up the complications of human relationships, work, and compassion. It's a stripper down neo-realist film that bursts with such incredible authenticity that I had to remind myself several times this was not a movie. This is what movies should do. Marion Cottiliard is incredible as well.
I recommend taking my five star rating at face value and see this without reading this review. I don't believe there are spoilers, but the less you know the better. It's an incredible documentary that deftly plays the audience with ostensible transparency and openness, and all the while building tension and suspense. Then there is what seems to be the prestige, and you think the trick is over, but then the lights flicker off and on and there is another big reveal followed by mystery. One of the best movies I've seen in awhile.
