Wild Strawberries

Wild Strawberries ★★½

this movie combines three elements, two of which i find negative: storytelling instincts that are overly literary for the impressionistic portrayal of memory and regret this sort of goes for, a pat sensibility that really doesn't match the pain being portrayed here, and a phenomenal grasp of how the totalizing vortexes of our accumulated identities eventually suck us all in over time.
