How to waste 3 hours of your life looking at this slop
In simple and plain words, film trash, good photography but terrible script. There is no climax, it is unnecessarily long and annoyingly slow (infinitely long tree or house plans). Dialogues that pretend to be cultured are only a sample of the level of pretension that endures throughout the tape. And the final scene of the bulls painfully made, with haze included to save CGI, which by the way is of a rather questionable quality. If you want to lose 3 hours of your life and do not know how to do it, look no further, here is the solution.
PD: Sorry for my bad English.
