    Like a lot of movies of this kind, it only exists to show the world how difficult it is to make an actually good slow intimate movie like Martel's La Ciénaga or Alonso's Los Muertos.

    The stiffness of this film and how usually falls in common places and slow cinema tropes made me think about Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese's This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection. That movie shows that this kind of cinema can still be done in a fresh, interesting and revolutionary way without the feeling that you've seen the same thing like ten times.
