This is part of the Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project DVD box set which included five other films: The Housemaid, Dry Summer, Redes, Touki Bouki and Trances. Bought the DVD box set as I saw the first two films online at mubi.com and was impressed by them!
The story is about the lives of the villagers staying near the Titas river.
Liked the nice music, the beautiful black and white cinematography and the great acting by the actresses!
