Beautiful production, striking set pieces hammy acting.
Beautiful production and striking set pieces do little to raise this clumsy drama to any level of worthiness. With a laughable script and cheesy acting, so much visual inventiveness has been squandered. How unfortunate that the hackneyed and stilted story centres on the two bratty brothers rather than the rich and well conceived culture in which they find themselves.
All a bit of a wasted opportunity I'm afraid. Effects do not validate an otherwise tedious experience.
