impressive
31 August 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

first - for the performance of Florence Pugh.and for her art of presence . the second - for the cold atmosphere. the tension as large spiderweb. not the last - for locations and bitter beauty of images and the memories about the play of Shakespeare, Lady Chatterley or Emma Bovary. and about the revenge as idea defining society. a slow, precise and cold film. like a piece of ice. a story about solitude. maybe, a tragic love story. inspired by a Russian character, it is one of fascinating , impressive films for the force of details. for the frames and for the hidden words. for a form of elegance. and for the direct message.maybe, for impeccable performances. and for an impeccable story.
