The first half is clever, well acted and coherent, told in two temporal planes. The main character, the one connecting the two parallel storylines, is refreshingly portrayed as a person rather than some magical spirit guide, one with nature, as often indigenous people are. After a while, though, it kind of flips out. Magic enters the scene, out-of-character allegiance swings occur, people are being generally weird. But the decline is not too bad, and the film as a hole still holds water.
