The devices are underlying and anticipating the latest war intense santimential wovies lexicon (like Schindler's List). Stunning cinematography and capturing director's work. High-On-Emotions Style completely proved by matter - long before present-day irony, we recognized at first here the pepresentation of principal and pure items of minimalist modern movie narration with the declaration of major dramatic positions (like eternity and temporapiness, love and betrayal, privacy and violence, mistake and selfidentification etc).
