There is a controversy about "experimental films." Well, Some sustain that this film isn't, but I have to make my point. This is an experimental film, and is by far only an experimental film, no less, no more.
It searches to be deep, but rarely succeed in be understandable. Maybe, it's just a chance to find another form to show a story, but the story was so poor, so dumb, that this new narrative lose all his chance to convince. Some people find sense in this film, but I believe that they commit a common mistake: to take the unreasonable and stupid for complexity and deepfulness. Well, you may remember the Anderson tale, the The Emperator's new suit. Don't be misguide by the theories of some people. This looks like a documentary, and is fine, but it has a 70 games of colors and filters, but the plot... well, there isn't.. the story.. well, it's just dumb... and the theme... well, it's like everything and nothing, like the Emperator's new suit.
