Beautifully elegant movie. Saw this at the Berlin fantasy film festival, I am someone who likes Alan Moore comics and also the works of Neil Gaiman, so when i saw the plot summary in the festival catalogue which discussed Hawksmoore etc, i bought tickets immediately.
I'm not sure how much the film costs but it was a gorgeously photographed and directed little film, I know its relatively low budget just by watching it, but it still is imbued with a lot of class and perception, reaching higher than I expected a film would.
My girlfriend and me were caught up in it immediately from the opening close up shot of Simon Puritan's face drenched in deep red light. The film wraps itself around you in a very subtle way, you don't know that it has hooked you, but when you realise you really enjoy the fact that it has gotten to you, because you have stopped trying to figure it out and are simply engrossed in its plot and visuals.
Am looking forward to its release. Wonder what the director is doing next??
