The film crew has shot a poem rather than a movie. You would either love or hate this piece; there is most probably no middle ground. I am personally in the former camp. The story itself is as familiar as an ancient Greek tragedy: namely, the sinfully intense love and the revengeful fate. The images are so captivating that makes you feel the characters exist out of space-time. This is highlighted when the heroin encounters "herself" more than a few times throughout the film. If you love poetry in images, then you will not easily forget the beautiful scenes and that primordial sadness arising from the unavoidable fate.
