Sensibly written and thoughtfully directed, intuitively acted, bitter-sweet like Belgian chocolate, and propelled by incredible bluegrass music, this is one of my coming-home movies. Aside from the beautiful imagery and stunning music, the highly emotional subject matter is perfect for summer nights. It’ll leave you full and empty, it’ll make you cry, value life, and will also more than likely get you back into bluegrass again. Elise and Dedier fall passionately in love despite their differences, but when their daughter falls ill, their future together becomes uncertain.

I just watched this movie and am left dumbfounded. It cuts through to unfathomable depths and reaches fantastic emotional currents in a manner that is llustrative of the human condition as it is evocative of reflection on humanity’s greatest existential questions. Not for the faint of heart, this portrayal is illuminating as it is strikingly bewildering, in a most sensible fashion.

This was amazing. I loved how the movie was cut and put together, the collage of the scenes is extremely well thought-through.
