...wanna see a mesmerizing movie?
26 March 2004 | by (Irun, Spain) – See all my reviews

...wanna see a mesmerizing movie? try this obscure italian docu-fiction starring miss Tilda 'Orlando' Swinton. It alternates cinema-verité and fictional reconstruction in a deep intense, experimental way. don't miss it if you like wild visions. music is stunningly beautiful and the editing is now fast then slow then fast again. I saw it in a festival and will look for a dvd release of it, it really touched me deeply. Paco
