What I liked

See above.

What I didn't like

Nothing comes to mind.

My overall impression

A beautiful meditation on family, love, life, and death, conveyed through a powerful, understated, and moving performance. Fascinating cultural exploration and narrative framing. Great use of minimal props, costumes, and sets. Smart lighting and use of darkness to establish the nighttime setting. Solid writing throughout.
