Beautiful
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story itself may seem disjointed, insubstantial, and may not strike a chord with many viewers. It is certainly not a movie to watch for entertainment. The premise is one of a kind -- a virus that erases memory of those infected. While the setting is supposed to be some distant future, the movie does not have any futuristic feel, but rather like any contemporary story. I admit the storytelling seems dragging on at times and the progression is certainly slow. However, I was completely immersed in the beauty of the imagery, the music, the overall atmosphere. It is drenched in pain, sorrow and longing. The main character, Anna is beautifully portrayed and the actress's quiet but expressive acting will draw you in if you keep an open mind. This is a movie to be watched not like a conventional "movie," but as you would savor a beautiful piece of painting.
