User Reviews: Going into this I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Maybe for that reason the sheer dazzling beauty of its beauty really surprised me and really had me falling in love with what I was seeing. I don’t think the screenplay is on the level of the directing, acting, and cinematography here (although it’s still rather good) and that’s only because the film works on a level of poetry and trance-like mystery and awe. Its beauty sort of transcends the screen and really leaves you with so many different emotions. It’s great that a film like this got nominated for the Oscar and while I don’t think it’s the best of the nominees, it surely comes highly recommended.
