Slices of a Utopian time
15 January 2007 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

A splendid pledge about the ambiguity of sin. Lesson about fundamental values and the nimbus of books. About illusions and chimeric truth, about search and secrets like means of life. And, very important, about the price of dreams.

A beautiful film like result light and subtle acting. A horror or thriller, a exploration of mystery and magical story, another Jacob wrestling with same Angel.

Story of a student out of law who discovers a special world with master and servants, a impressive library and restless whispers, an intangible corpse and a malefic shadow.

Blak magic and subtle art of Dionisi. And slices of seductive Utopian time with powerful flavor.
