Well, I found this pretty captivating. Every shot feels like a painting, painstakingly composed and colored just for the audience. Some scenes, particularly the flashbacks, drag a bit. But I was still mesmerized by the protagonists search for beauty/love as the camera forces you to take this journey with him. Simultaneously enchanting and uncomfortable, both precise and vague, this film demands your attention.
It's hard to judge him for being a creepy old man when that boy's hair is just so fabulous.
Music box with reconstituted images.
