Somnolence disguised as an art film
17 January 2021 | by tadam-51245See all my reviews

I had to watch this in 2 stages; I fell asleep partway through it. When I started watching a day later, I had to get online to remember what it was about. That should tell you something.

I rated it a 5/10 because it is beautifully filmed, but that's really all it has going for it. The second half of the film is painfully slow, absolutely glacial in its pacing. This is a film that mistakes silence for deep contemplation, and somber lighting and looks for artistry. It wants to be thought of as profound and insightful, and fails to deliver on either.
