This is clearly a very original film. Sokurov uses "Madame Bovary" as his inspiration, and transforms hidden desires and longing of the protagonist into metaphysical beauty. You can't say there's much "happening" in the film. It owes more to painting than to drama, and that's what makes it so stunning. The inner life of the characters is still the centerpoint. Sokurov and his photography team turn reality into something akin of icon-art, twisting and distorting visual image into fantastic forms. Simply: marvelous.
