One of those films I like but can't quite put my finger on why. There is a lovely quiet intimacy to it. It felt rather like I was in the car with them. If you've ever been on a long car ride with strangers give this a watch.

In his Nobel Acceptance Speech Dylan wondered out loud why WS set Hamlet in Denmark. This film is a fitting to his question.

An intriguing movie. The acting in this was kind of odd, maybe because it didn't seem like they were acting, especially the woman. But some of the story didn't make sense and didn't seem very realistic. Odd ending.
