"Firecracker" is not your regular film; it's done with a technique that is not common in the industry, and therefore has been and probably will be, both criticized and praised. The technique is used by showing realistic moments in merciless (and real) black and white and fantasy moments in dazzling colour. There are some of the most elaborate sequences of any movie ever made. This way of filming shows how the two opposite worlds become one world as the story lines merge. The plot itself does not trail far from the true story it's based on, judging by what's on the official web site. So it's anyone's guess as to what parts of the movie are dramatized and which parts are truth.
Visually, this movie is spectacular. The colors are scorching and add a sense of mystery to the film. The music is exquisite and the performances are perfectly played. This movie hit me in a really hard way.
It's impossible to stop thinking about this movie.
