A lonely doctor who once occupied an unusual lakeside home begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
This is a fairy tail, transfered on the screen with respect to it's original plot, pretty much as it should have been told two and a half centuries ago, when it was first put on paper (1756). Of course, given it's age and the nature of fairy tail stories, there are many variants from region to region and from century to century but the core of the story remained solid and this is what we see. I really had the impression that the story that i was looking at was told by someone who lived in the past and not my grandma. The realization is quite satisfying, the costumes and the colors are impressive but it's a bit too dark at some points. Maybe there should have been more day time scenes but i guess they wanted to stress out the dark side of the story. This was tiring. The music was all right but i really think that the producers could have done a better job here. More intensively ambient music could have make this motion much more interesting for a young audience. Overall, i think it's a beautiful picture to take your family to, especially if you have children -not too young though,it can get scary-.
