Henri de Maublanc,
This movie is visually very impressive. There are nice images, good poetry and stuff. It is really very interesting. In the fantasy genre and without apparent ordinary movie conventions it tries to convey a message of spirituality and does so quite well. To be quite honest, I enjoyed this movie a lot. It is very brave and courageous and deals with hard subjects such as death, for example. Maybe not a movie for everyone but at least I found it very interesting. It is a great pity the majority of Hollywood trained viewers might be unable to appreciate great art like this because it really is very interesting. I recommend this to everyone who is interested in artistic expression in movies.
