I want to see this quite a bit. Did you see 'Thirst'? It seemed to have a similar mood, other than being from the same country. Thirst didn't get great reviews, but I thought it was a really interesting film.

BTW - the library has the 4 disc Criterion collection of Pedro Costa's films. Only watched one so far, and not sure what I thought of it.

Also, wonder if you saw either of the Roy Andersson movies that are available on Netflix. One is available at the library - interesting to get your take on it.
