Watched this film with Ana and Tamemeh on my birthday, during the lull time in between the moment we checked out of the hotel, to the traditional family dinner.
I saw this poster in one Tumblr I'm following (vanillachailatte) and was surprised of the star-studded cast! =D
God! Heath Ledger and Johnny Depp in one film! I just have to see this!
The movie poster is enchanting on its own, kind of reminded me of Moulin Rouge's mysticism and Across the Universe's trippy and unaligned vibes--both turned out to be my favorite films. =) Even the title is hard to remember! :D Haha! And Lily Cole looks surreal!
True enough, I ended the film not knowing what to say, or where I have been! ;p It has it's own pacing and directions! My friends and I walked out of the cinema like dumbstruck kids--lost? =D Unexplainable experience!
Anyway, we were long-way out of the theater, when we started talking again, and Tamems asked me what I can say about the film.
Here's a grasp of what I said--something like the film is on making choices. Well, that was what I mainly got. There's also putting up an image, or dreaming of another life, or a father's love for his daughter, or I know there's something more beneath it, worth the repeat watching. The film is art! It seems to need viewers who are "high"--trippy, or people who will take their wild wild imaginations with them inside the movie house. I actually like the boggling experience. Visually enticing like the Moulin Rouge--I love the colors, the texture of the film--the stage--old and new! I am not sure what era did these gypsy-ish things existed, but I am attracted to them.
A work of genius! Till I encounter a movie like this again. =p
