Visual metaphors of life and the place of individual in a given society
Very intellectually challenging, beautifully shot movie not only of girlhood and becoming woman but of life in general as well. A classic - that can already be seen. A classic in the way very few movies are. Operates with metaphors and allegories.
If one likes to read cultural critique and critique of society and labour, one probably loves this movie. It's no "popcorn and giggling" movie. I'd recommend serious, curious attitude towards it. Trying to understand it as one understands poetry.
However, I would't call it a "difficult" movie. Everyone has been a child. Everyone has been forced to live in a society with some features one is not so ready to live with.
