"It was just a dream"

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This film has an outer and an inner side, like most good films. On the outer side, an antique restorer from Germany marries a 30 year younger Slovak girl (after 'purchasing' her from her forster parents). The film shows the development of their difficult relationship.
On the inner side, this is a film about healing traumatic experiences from the past,
and it is deeply moving.
As for the DVD: The transfer could be better (grainy TV quality). The film languages are German and Cech, and the english subtitles can't be turned off."
