    Beautifully atmospheric and dreamlike, yet relentlessly bleak. The usage of light is very absorbing, and I loved how the story is mostly told by the visuals. The print has ages, but the strengt of the visuals is still there. Remarkably poetic. There are very few intertitles, and when there are they are mostly almost of a contemplative fashion, showing thoughts, etc. We really are in the slum here. Our protagonists are an old beggar, a prostitute and her lover. The subject; Greed and poverty. The story was somewhat lacking, but it was really well done. Might have been truly great with better music. As it stands it's still highly recommendable however. 7/10. 5 years 10 months ago
