I have not much to say about the movie, and I am not going to tell everyone what to think of the plot, for it isn't the best story I have seen, although it is not bad at all (!). But I decided on giving a small comment because I was very much impressed by the unbelievable photography. I myself am a filmstudent, and the special, exact and mysterious atmosphere that was given to this movie is something to be unbelievably jealous of. Apart from the light (and SHADOW) and the images, the sound is also adding to a movie very worth the effort of watching. Everything goes very slowly, taking the time to make every image just perfect. Wether you like the story or not, after seeing this movie you just HAVE to admit that it at least LOOKS and SOUNDS great!
