Viewing Notes

Probably one of the most sensitive, mature, heartbreaking portrayals of love between two people I’ve ever seen on screen. The portrayal of the act of making art was also beautiful and realistic. I really need to delve into this director’s other films which also look great.

I’m excited to finally see this in a couple of days! Wish it had better distribution given how positive the reactions have been.
