Stunning
3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful film, it has a very Japanese rhythm and pace to it, which may be hard to appreciate for certain American audiences. It is dreamy, serene and disturbing. Full of symbols and deeper meaning. I had no idea what it was about, and was glad I did not read anything about it beforehand. The film is pure enough to be filled with individual associations and references, which is a mark of high art form, at least for me.

Bjork is no longer a girl, she is a woman: time and giving birth have laid their mark. She looked stunning to me.

If you watch it - let it wash over you.
