I am doing research on the reception of contemporary films and I am looking for film viewers that were touched by BREAKING THE WAVES, either positively or negatively. As the SCREEN-L- participants are professional film-fanatics, I thought this would be a good medium to collect some more reactions to the film. I am not looking for in-depth-interpretations, however, just the way you remember the experience of watching it. (If this was a very intense experience, than all elaboration on this intensity is very welcome, off course!) Did you like the movie or were you repulsed by it (and why), were you touched by a special element or a particular scene, or by the film as a whole? Was the film related to experiences in your own life, or not? As it it is not my intention to renew the debate on the film on this list, I would be very grateful if you could send me your reaction to my personal e-mail-address: [log in to unmask] Thank you very much in advance!
