Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Tight ★★★½

This film may not be my cup of tea in regard to its themes of loss and motherhood and adulthood, which I respect (but I don't get), but it does (right) a lot of things that I love to see on the screen:
1. Non-consequential editing as a form of storytelling (GREAT music & sound editing!)
2. The characters aren't conscious pawns but travel seemlessly from scene to scene with dramatic effect as if in a dream
3. The story and style of the film grow more abstract minute after minute
4. The viewer isn't treated like an idiot, we're silent tourists in these characters' lives, accomplices in something that truly makes sense only once the whole, fragmented plot is over
If only I could connect more to the story... But that's my fault, not the movie's.
