Astonishingly original
18 April 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a true original and it made me break out in a sweat at certain points. Not many films have a physical effect on their audience.

There were some astonishing moments and scene transitions that were literally breathtaking. I didn't believe the director had put certain things in to solely shock as some people have suggested. The film looks very lush in style and there were some stunning compositions. My favourite story was the final one with the sickly grandson of the original character. I am trying to source 'Hukkle' now as I want to see more by this director. I have not seen anything this interesting for some time. This film lingers in my mind.
