Along with the superbly fitting 80’s synth soundtrack make for a masterpiece of epic proportions. Love it to bits.

Take it for a walk. And that's what-where we're…

    Wow, what a remarkable film this is... I read many reviews (better than mine, but I do feel the need to write something) that stated it's not for everyone and I fully agree. But if you're open minded, not afraid of some impressionistic images and unskeptical towards spirituality and philosophy, this might well turn out to be one of the most powerful cinematic experiences you've ever enjoyed.

    I went in with some knowledge of the type of film, so I…
