at the middle of way
18 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A beautiful cinematography. Good performances. Seductive potential. No real story. A mother and her daughter in a village. A new beginning. Large slices of folklore. And something is lost in the effort to suggest more than show. A film about the circle of fear but it is just a large puzzle, with too different pieces, who could be only imagined as final picture but not made. Something remains in the sketch status. You have all the elements of story but the plot itself is missing. A film at the middle of way, without any direction. Beautiful, interesting, giving the flavor of old Central European myths and legends. But, unfortunately,nothing more.
