A thrilling ride and absorbing world
21 November 2019 | by jacobyoung-81203See all my reviews

A really great ride. Such a fantastically well-realised medieval style of world that really sucks you in from the beginning. That may have been the best thing for me - its style and atmosphere was really engrossing and the score and music choices really helped that. Visually the film was very striking too. The main performances were excellent - the two leads, the small girl, the old man and the constable stand out. A really unique and well-thought take on punch and judy - it was clever how all the links to the show were brought in (many of which I didn't realise at the time). There were a couple of issues - a few performances here and there I didn't like that much - but overall it was really great and I look forward to seeing it again.
