"The Complaint of an Empress" is more like a collection of random images, something like a collage. Most people would find the film boring and pointless, but I, for one, liked it immensely. It's all too quirky, too weird. Nothing makes sense, and there's no plot or dialogue. It's just random images, and sound. I guess it's comparable to Ron Fricke's work in a way. The scenes with the woman dressed as a bunny are very memorable. I think they are my favourites.

And this actually made me want to learn how to dance! The choreography is so marvelous, you want to dance just like the actors. So, yes, it's not your typical motion picture, but I really liked it.
