Wait, What?
30 April 2015 | by viola-zichySee all my reviews

To keep it concise - this film might have some nice visuals but other than that it is, hands down, one of the worst films I have ever seen. The plot is completely scattered and even in the very end the director gives us no clarity as to what it was she wanted to say with it. On the other hand it is not art house-y enough to be relying purely on it's visuals or sounds. The music was a tad too tacky for my taste too, but I think this is debatable, depending on what you usually like. Other than that I think you have to be pretty confused to like this film. I would really not recommend spending your money on it in the cinema. If you like plot less films with enchanting nature shots go watch "Wuthering Heights", much more worth your pennies. Nonetheless give it 2 stars for a nice attempt(!!) at cinematography.
