the final image at the beginning changing meandering from scene to scene a river running backwards. the language narrow minimalist precise. female male. middle-aged young. what I liked most about the play … that it all really happens … like in a dream … changing so rapidly in every scene… as if it were a daydream… this is magical realism according to márquez, or maybe not, maybe rather according to kusturica and time of the gypsies or to Madonna in like a prayer: in the midnight hour, i can feel your power … these words hold great worldly wisdom, wisdom about man and woman, about their country. a love of life, a yearning for love, a painful tenderness.
