My Goodness, this is one astonishingly beautiful film ! Breathtaking !

(Dark) Ages of history are shown floating by, going seemingly without any effort (and boy must thát have taken a lot of work to accomplish !) from one epoque to the next. This is glorious storytelling of the highest level.

Sensational & Superbly Skilled Film-making !

But it doesn't end here. The film is made as if the viewer is watching an oil paint painting in progress, which progresses along the story and keeps on moving. Moving us deeply and astonishes us maybe even more due to this breathtaking technique. As if Van Gogh or Gaugain is sitting next to us painting this story while we are watching it.

It is só beautiful, só overwhelming; this is truly a major accomplishment in film-making.

Or better yet: this must be one of the most wonderful films ever made !
