I never wrote a movie review, don't even know where to start. But I was struck by many of the comments about the ending. Yes, the movie creates a slow and steady absorbing crescendo and then leaves you hanging at the edge of your emotional seat. There is no final resolution, no happy ending. Just a bit of shock and a million questions. But that is also part what makes it compelling and unique. Definitely not Hollywood made. It is slow and profound. Realistic love story albeit a bit corny at times. But isn't love corny? The meeting of 2 very different people from very different cultures, and how a relationship develops - not based on sex and physical magnetism, although it is there like an undercurrent. These are real people with real lives and their own personal battles. Somehow, their destinies merge. It is a beautiful thing. If you are shallow are prefer Hollywood polytechnics and rampant sexual lust, you will find this movie slow and boring. Otherwise, you will find it beautiful. Great cinematography, panorama, music, elegance. I recommend. And a sequel would be interesting.
