  1. I have watched the whole movie, but I cannot really understand why it is considered a masterpiece. Most of the time I found it boring, even though, I found some parts interesting – like hunting and some socialization parts. You do not see much of the pure hunting nowadays and animal defending groups would go berserk if such movie was made nowadays 🙂 Moreover, I do not understand the premise of their father commiting suicide just like that. What struck me more, though, was that the girl did not miss the father. Her playing was almost indifferent towards the fact that her father has died few hours/days ago when she was in the bush. What are your thoughts?

    • Err, things I liked.. wonderful visuals/music, naturalistic performances, doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of growing-up/sexuality/race/survival in extreme environments..
