Cast & Credits
I was a little discouraged over the fact that this movie was around 50 minutes long since I expected a 2 hour long movie.
The title says 'Slow Life,' but don't get your hopes up since it is NOT slow at all.
It went by pretty quickly and it was so beautiful.
I think in order to understand what the movie is trying to say, you have to be sentimental.
I highly recommend this movie to people who are trying to escape from reality!!!
