Most Remarkable Film I Have Ever Seen
13 January 2007 | by cynthia-92See all my reviews

I was simply astonished by this film. I almost think it should not be called a film, as it is so radically different from what we are accustomed to with feature films. This is not a piece of entertainment. Its a piece of incredible art. The book is difficult in itself, but so rewarding, and this film is no different. Its non narrative, and its not supposed to pretend to be like quotidian reality, but actually it feels MORE real than real life. The whole construction, the style of acting, the cinematography, set design and soundtrack are a complete departure from the usual fare. This is one of those films that can change how you look at film, if you are game for that. If not, leave it alone. Its not for everyone, but the best things never are.
