    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Many elements of this film are unusual and fascinating. Di and Diem (the filmmaker) clearly have a really strong connection, but the scene where Di is screaming and crying asking for the filmmaker to help her while she is being dragged by the fiancé’s family…it was hard to watch. My heart was breaking for Di so much that I was angry at the filmmaker for not putting down her camera and helping her. All that connection… a means to an end. To a film.

    Idfa opening film. Some beautiful moments, but the filmmaker being so present in the film makes this not for me

    I don’t think I fully get Mike Leigh movies even though I try very hard to love them. I call upon anyone to who loves them to explain it to me!!
