the atmosphere is the key for a fairy tale who preserves traditional recipes but use new ingredients. slow, strange, seductive, remembering art cinema but proposing different perspective, it is more a challenge for viewer than entertainment. and that is the purpose. because, full of cultural references, it has its precise target. cocktail of Sci Fi themes, using myths and images from old stories, it seems be a game. or a parable. or, maybe, only obscure, beautiful film. in fact, it is only a kind of flavor of images. a bridge between worlds. careful made, exploring force of symbols, cold and mysterious, it is one of films who are not easy to define but too easy to reject.
