A quiet movie, shaken from time to time by ripples of emotional turbulence far beneath the surface.
Eye caviar that doesn't pretend to be much else.
The actress (Scarlett Johansson) gives a nearly silent performance, yet the interplay on her face of fear, ignorance, curiosity, and sex is intensely dramatic.
This is an art film in spades.
