A slow moving although artistic triumph in most aspects, the cinematography is excellent and the background music is not only appropriate but also essential in establishing the mood and atmosphere of the film. In terms of plot, it is rather interesting as a story of feelings of guilt and police interrogation, yet in seems a little short in plot substance, as at times the material really drags. The melding of flashbacks could also be improved on, as it is hard to distinguish between thoughts, memories and reality. However, the overall experience is excellent and the factors I've mention do not severely affect it, but it is not nearly perfect as a film.
