I believe this movie to be a great teaching material for illustrating collectivistic cultures on the extreme.
Additionally it has charming cinematography, soothing music and an authentic construct with theatre-like presentation.
Just a stunning work of art.
My wife and I watched this some time ago and it still comes back to us.
Absolutely worth your time.
Better than 1983 version.
