HauntingThere is something very haunting about this movie. I first saw this movie at a college artsy movie theater in 1987 or 1988 after my roommate didn't come back to the dorm room because he stayed at the theater all night and a day watching this movie over and over. I never saw it again and yet I still sometimes see scenes from the movie and can almost hear some of the music. I can't remember another movie affecting me this way. [by JI]
WonderfulA gem of a movie. Poignant, mysterious, true in a magical way. It is on my top 20 list. I saw it years ago, but some of the scenes still resurface from time to time in my memory. Imagination and freedom are celebrated in this movie, while at its core it seems to explore to what degree one needs to conform to diligent everyday tasks (housekeeping) in order to exist. Two adolescent sisters are faced with a choice in their personal lives. Will they choose freedom or belonging? One of the delightful things about this movie is that is does not stand in judgment of the either choice.
