ABOUT THE FILM

A man, a girl, and a boy; three people in one location on a July afternoon of Swedish countryside. Connected by the vast rye field with tick cricket songs, the man hurries for a hunt, the girl rides her bike through the shadows of the lime trees, and the boy goes across the line where a child-play turns into a reality. By the time it rains, all three of them confront themselves. A beautiful piece fascinates its viewers with its successful capture of the lush foliages and the smell of air of July in Sweden.

I found the cinematography to be exceptional. The images were clean and captivating to the eye. However I found the concept of the storyline to be disjointed and too fragmented for my taste. It really left me in a vacumn of uncertainty about what was happening . Wonderful effort.

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.
