Like a Painting That Asks Questions
22 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I won't pretend to understand everything or even half of what went on in this film. I gave up pretty quickly into the film, however, I wanted to keep on watching and the film kept me enticed mainly for that reason.

Sometimes it feels good not to understand? Just to watch for the beauty? The Magic? The craziness? The unknowingness of it all.

I really found this film like I was wandering through a modern art gallery but so much better. It was painted beautifully, the setting and the colours; my mouth watered and i felt like i was eating a six course meal.

The words also seemed to be quite poetically abstract to fit in with it all.

A dream like film.
