What a bizarre and disturbing, yet hauntingly beautiful movie, full of twists and turns. Every time I thought I had figured it out, it took another direction and made me await the outcome even more eagerly. It is best to know next to nothing about it in advance, though. Basically it's the old scientist-messes-with-nature-story. The components are well known and not too original by themselves, but Natali manages to tell his tale with an interesting and thought-provoking new angle.
Great actors, a fascinating look, an intelligent, almost poetic screenplay... What's not to love about it? Propably not for everyone, but I found it to be the best SF-/Fantasy-movie since Pan's Labyrinth.
