Confusing to follow sometimes.
22 December 2019 | by manugwSee all my reviews

Mingling poetic ghost images with the actual real physical world is a fair resource, in this case doing it briskly makes difficult to understand the liaisons and the plot altogether. Film is good, but fails to transmit the underlying message to the viewer, when the abovementioned resources are not properly used. In other words. I could not understand the legacy of the story beyond the basic events when the magic took over
