CGiii Comment

With names like...the mad Madonna, Loony Lips and Crooked Finger - how could you not love this film?!?

A painting painted and interpreted with warmth and charm - with a few tears thrown in - just to keep us grounded.

It most deservedly won the Oscar...cinema at its best.


The(ir) Blurb...

In an anonymous Dutch village, a sturdy, strong-willed matriarch looks back upon her life, the generations of family and friends gathered around her table, and ponders the cyclical nature of time.
