we don't get a transformation scene!
20 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not unlikeable but this slender tale cannot support the full extent of the preposterous and pretentious factors that the director wants to introduce. Incredibly good to look at throughout but dragged down by the melodrama and poor use of music. Beginning well, this soon plunges into some sort of music video, before deteriorating into something more akin to a stage musical and eventually into the world of opera, while our sad little tale meanders hopelessly behind. There are shots of grasses, swaying in wind and rain and also rivers and the sea, shot in breathtaking fashion but still the dialogue plods and the music grates. It is also unforgivable that we don't get a transformation scene!
