to make it short, i really dislike this movie. I usually enjoy asian films- if they're good.
one of february's major flaws is the almost missing plot. i won't give away any detail now, in case you still come around this flick and decide to give it a go nevertheless.
still, stretching the already ultra-thin story over a time of almost 2 hours results in a complete narrative vacuum. this artistic void is further drained soulless by the lead actress' bad performance. displaying the same facial expression of stupefied amazedness for almost the entire length of the movie annoyed me beyond belief.
to make things even worse, the sound designer opted for outfitting "february" with a cheaply produced "melodramatic" soundtrack. you know what i'm talking about, cheap synthesizer chords underlined with some wannabe "deep" guitar solo. shudder. this is pulp hollywood melodrama gone thai.
additionally, the movie plays around with ambient sounds, like passing cars, which are suddenly cut off when the camera focuses on some actor. this destroys the last essence of credibility, if there ever was any in this dull, pointless, waste-of-time movie.
