    I just watched this movie a second time. It is a parable of such aching beauty. Every move is so carefully and subtly played out, at once humble and downplayed, at the same time sublime and uplifting. I'm a fan of minimalism for example, of the styles of musician Arvo Part or artist Marc Rothko. This film reflects this tradition, with the simplest of pauses, moments, glances or gestures, communicating from the depths of the soul. Expand

  1. Mr. Kolirin, it emerges, is wrenching comedy out of intense melancholia.

    A warm and delightful take on cross-cultural relations that proves that sometimes a light touch is just what's needed to address serious topics.

    A heartfelt, wry and decidedly spry film.
