Intense, Poetic, Primal, Cultural, Sexual

See it if 6 actresses take turns enacting poems of Samoan womanhood. Sexuality, coming-of-age, religion, family, food. Builds to intense ending.

Don't see it if You are not interested in a powerful physical performance that is occasionally confusing & drawn out. Multiple slices of life; no plot. Read more
