Excellent film , music, acting, cinematography and story. Topics include various styles of human behavior specifically anger and conflict, communication styles, such as abusive, passive / aggresive, bullies, gentle spirits, peace makers, breaking the stereotypical male / female abuser roles...

Story is about a man who is a mathematitial, cerebral, gentle spirit, who uses calm logical communication. He marries a woman with addiction, substance and sex , abuse, passive aggressive, bully and physically violent. Story explores and illuminates the taboo and little known subject of male domestic abuse by a female (or partner). The story unfolds and is told, in a non threatening light, innocent, almost humorous way, as we watch the main character go through the story, learning about himself, going through the stages of denial, shock, grief, admitting his abusive relationship, finding therapy, and regaining self esteem.

It is excelelnt in every way, a great study in the many types of conflict, communication behavior , including those who want to be abused and bullied. Any teen aged and older classroom would benifit from using this as a study of human behavior, stereotypes, communication styles.

The child who is forced to live in these abusive homes, and forever changed, then taken away, is also a large part of the story. The beuaracray that judges a person by a few minutes of interview is illuminated.

So many very important and disturbing topics, done in an elegant, compassionate, and deeply honest and truthful way.

Hope, recovery, change, therapy, healthy communication are also demonstrated.

Well worth watching again and again.

Having been a child in such a violent home, it is absolutely a story that needs to be told, and it is told in a wonderfully artistic and hopeful way. Almost dance like, no movement, color, scenery, object, word, person, subject, camera angl, posture, .. is without meaning.
