People frequently refer to this movie as Burtonesque, which sounds great in my ears. Sadly, the truth is that it is nowhere near. Sure, the setting is beautiful and has that ooze of modern fairy tale, not completely unlike Burton's Big Fish. But the resemblances stop there.
This is a movie with high ambitions, for that it should be rewarded alone. Sadly it does not deliver even half of what it aims at. A shallow story full of clichés and a painfully poorly directed dialog makes me reach for the remote more than one time.
Not even the innovative setting, nor Loa Falkman's portrayal make this movie worth while.
