There are many themes, medics, anorexia, food, psychology, sickness, death, love, childhood, marriage, adultery, sex, familiar, social, school, luxury, religion, faith, beauty, architects... among many others, then I say it is a extremely complex moving picture, where the fusion of those parts make sense and we can spend some different 90 minutes in front of the TV.
The actors are very good, and well adapted to the characters physical and psychological terms. The shooting locations aren't bad; too many interior scenes, but the rain ones (even on the windows) compensate it.
