it may not be accurate but having heard the director talk about his film in person i can tell you he did not intend it to be a historical or political piece. it is a love story that is enjoyable to watch so people should stop criticising it for not being something it was never intended to be. if people did stop pointing out whats wrong with it for one second they may be able to see whats right about it. For example, the colours and sets used create a beautiful feeling and transport the viewers to the golden era when beauty was so important to cinematography. overall i would describe this film as charming, it may not be for everyone but i know that there will be many who can appreciate this film for what it is without immediately criticising it for attempting to be something it never wanted to be in the first place.
