"[A] typically well-observed chamber piece....The shooting style is discreet and observational."
A charming, deliberately-paced tale about a shy teacher who becomes involved in the complex romantic and emotional machinations of a cast of characters including her young student, the student's amorous father, and the father's much-younger, naive lover.
