The spirit of all seasons: A journey from girlhood to womanhood.

Her watchful gaze, graceful and muted, strikes a chord much like the works of Impressionist painters, so profound and breathtaking. Anishoara follows the almost speechless titular character through her daily life, doing chores, running through fields, and falling in love. A world is built in the Moldovan countryside, a timeless and ancient place – the way that Anishoara looks at the facets of life in her village lends a sort of mysticism to the film. Director Ana-Felicia Scutelnicu orchestrates Anishoara with delicacy and subtlety, giving life to a timeless country, giving way for romanticism to flourish separately from the externalities of the world outside of Moldova. – Joseph Morales
