The story is told clearly through the image, even without dialogue. Great image, The combination of footage really make sense to me.

Great photography, beautiful staging, each frame tells a lot. Mixing the music of the different levels of the society at the end is brilliant. This is one of the movies that stays in the mind and its silence creates a lot of discussions afterwards.
