A fine film in most regards, but not a masterpiece. Cinematic elements undermined through overuse of literary form within ill suited contexts. Dubbing aside, experience of the film is hampered by at times awkward speech & abrupt quotation seemingly contrived to suit the film’s ends. A creative endeavor rife with symbolism which fails to immerse beyond its technical achievements in lighting and panning. I will admit that my experience was mostly of distracted attention due to the asynchronously dubbed speech, but this in itself is a telling fault not to be ignored.
79/100 – Very Good (3.5)
