Dark and dense movie. Amazing cinematography and soundtrack!
It's beautiful & has fantastic music, but I also found it completely incomprehensible. Several viewings required, I suspect.
It is like watching a play. Several acts, one act ends, the other begins. At the start of every act there is this small description. Allthough the storyline is not always that good to follow.
What i did like was the music...i suppose you could call it Gregorian for a part...it fits the movie.
Beside music and storyline, lots and lots of great shots in black and white.
This all together makes it a very watchable movie.
One tip though. Find a good copy to download...the Youtube link is nice, but in full-screen tends to be a bit less sharp.
There are some good downloads available: copy past this in your torrent searchwindow:
