Beautiful music and clothes
26 July 2004 | by (Lausanne) – See all my reviews

The music is excellent. Of course. The clothes are designed by Vivienne Westwood. They only can be beautiful. Besides these facts, the movie won the Best Picture Award at the Swiss Film Prize. I found the story sometimes boring and quite long. On the other hand, the actors are all doing a great job. One last comment about the madness-and-"gayness" of one character. It could actually be taken out of the plot: it's too much and doesn't bring anything to the movie, to my point of view...
