A very odd movie I got to see during the Berlin International Film Festival. Odd might be an understatement and I'm sure I didn't completely comprehend what it was trying to tell me. But I was mesmerized nevertheless. By the different settings, by the way the actors behaved, by the colors. Actually just by everything.
It is tough to talk about something, that was clearly inspired by paintings, though I couldn't tell you which ones. I'm not even sure I want to read more about it, just to keep that cloud of mystery over it and making up things I imagine are true of what the story is supposed to be (or if there even is one). It's not really a structure to be seen, so that fact alone will not get too many people engaged into watching it. You have to be in the mood for this. A special kind of mood I suppose
