Weird, yet intriguing till the end (and thought-provoking)
It's sort of avant-garde fantasy with moral layers. Weird film, but intriguing till the end. Then I grasped how convincing it really is into its being truly thought-provoking.
An open mind is a necessity (plus it's french, lol). Several artistic references are there for who can recognize them.
I feel the black&white scenes really add to the story. The island seems amazing. The cast and directing are excellent! Certain scenes stay with you quite some time. Oh, and there is a fake ending and a little extra for who sits till after the end titles.
