A piece of art, 16 December 2009
Author: alienmachine

At first moment when I turned on this film, I didn't had any idea of what to expect, Even though I did heard about it (that's I watched it at the first place). But after I watched it, I was kinda stunned of the artistic visualization of this movie. It is beautiful, simply. Many people might not like it as many won't understand it, but if you can, Do watch this movie. It is a reflection of pressure from the society and others to a person for the idea of 'The Perfect Human', which is according to me, completely irrelevant. The ideas like 'The Perfect Human', 'The Idol Band', etc. are just sentences, and thus not an statement, ideas like this might be right for one, and wrong for the other. Your idea for the perfect life for a person, might not be right according to that person itself. This movie beautifully represents such statement for the 'The Perfect Human' part.
