    Superbly serene and beautiful .We find ourselves so deeply attached to the movie,that we feel like the protagonist himself,first trying to find an escape in the movies and then unable to grapple up and come in terms with reality,our depserate attempts to cling on to something we know will not stay forever and our weakness in accpeting its change,and no matter how far we have come from where we have started we still have that deep-rooted wish to hold on to those beautiful moments and stay there forever like nothing happened at all.Musical score is so elegant it embraces the beauty of the movie.Pure masterpiece.The protagonist's homecoming is in a way kind of my return to this amazing work and my strong desire to just lie there forever. 10 years 3 months ago
