"In nature all things pass but with the finest work of cinema some things fortunately remain forever. The jury has chosen this quiet gem of filmmaking for successfully capturing intimate moments pregnant of nostalgia. Through a delicate balancing act of light and poverty, laughter and melancholia, old wisdom and fleeting youth, the film paints a subtle dream of love and family in a lost season of paradise."
