This may be the most beautiful film I've ever seen!
Saw it once, and can't get it out of my mind! I'm constantly coming back to it, because every time I think of examples of films that are so artistic, so poetic, so visually stunning, I think of this. It's a film that awakens my senses – audibly, visually, intellectually… Seeing it, my imagination's carried away on a cloud of ripe color. The whole film is like one big, long poem---but oh, so much better! Brought to life... through sounds and visions of loveliness.
While this film is ultimately filled with sadness, for me, the emotion of enchantment overrides it. Regardless of how the storyline ultimately unfolds, this is a film that will touch you in other ways, bringing your sensuality alive like you never thought a movie could! All at once warm and freezing, this film is like a cozy cottage and a cold abandoned castle – it's like a fairy tale and a tale of woe. Simple, and yet profoundly effective!
I do believe that this film is quite possibly the most beautiful that I've ever seen! Highly recommended.
Please excuse typos/funny wording; I use speech-recognition that doesn't always recognize!
