Beanpole

Beanpole ★★★½

Loved the setting and the exquisite direction. But I was never able to connect with the characters or their odd behavior. I understand that it's a different culture in a different time and a reflection of the PTSD that everyone suffered after the war. But still... the oddity of it all just never landed with me. I certainly didn't dislike it, I just couldn't latch on to the performances.
