One of the most gorgeous films I've ever seen
16 March 2011 | by nunofyrbidnessSee all my reviews

I will say first - this is not a movie for everyone. And I'm all for that, since movies for everyone seem to be short on story - big on noise and special effects, and heaven knows there's a glut on that market nowadays. There's no snappy dialogue, in fact dialogue itself is minimal.

What you *will* get is a fairly dark tale about family, poverty, isolation and passion set in the depression era, told through some of the most stunningly gorgeous cinematography. The director, cast and crew do an incredible job of allowing the story to develop in its own time, and primarily visually. The cast itself does an excellent job of being transparent and letting the characters be the visible presence.

An excellent antidote to the preponderance of movies full of flash/bang and not much else.
