You must be prepared to immerse yourself in the slow, measured progress of this film as it develops the connection between this young couple. I came to love it. And I am very pleased I resisted an initial impulse to stop watching. Already this couple has spent a lifetime together. And for me the pacing of the film made me understand how much they had grown together during these years. But now their time together appears at an end. This film is well worth your time if you are willing to float along with it to its heart rending finale.
