this is really beautiful. really calming rhythm to it. sweet and pleasant until the "lie" falls apart. also ugh the lighting is just so nice i want everywhere i go to be lit like that it makes everything look so comfy.
only complaints: it could have ended before the kids "check" to see if Mikael is a boy or not i think it would have worked just as well, the end can be insinuated anyway from that point. that scene was super upsetting as a trans person but yeah i get why it was included. just woulda nixed it myself.
the very very end left me wondering abt the entire message of the film and idk how i feel about it. i'll think about it some more but currently not the biggest fan which is a shame cause i loved it so much until the end. i am literally the hardest person to please when it comes down to the very end of any movie so like whatever i just have to mull it over.
