Superb
10 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this film not knowing what to expect. Needless to say you are in for a captivating and intelligent plot executed down to the last detail.

This film is essentially beautiful and can easily be considered a work of art. I was mostly intrigued by the photographic aspect of the film itself. Each shot is visually stimulating and emotional due to the striking lighting effects, which I found especially masterful.

One shouldn't leave out the superb acting that helped bring out the intensity of this script. The main character, Elizabeth really pulls the viewer into her world and you wind up suffering with her. It is truly moving.

Mr.Piana is a brilliant director, you will not be disappointed in this film!
