At Brown University this evening I saw this film with a friend. We both liked aspects of it, but I enjoyed it more. The visuals were great, the village depicted was pretty, as were the brightly colored cloths. I like the way the film starts as a folk story by a narrator. The production values are not "western", and there are times when too little light is used. It is good though to see a raw film now and then. I like the way the camera was stationary at times and others very rough movements. The story is a combination of fantasy and folklore (a tinge of Greek Tragedy too), with a good base of reality. I think the viewer was not meant to understand everything that occurs. If you like to try new things, this film is for you.
