Some screenshots I grabbed from skimming the film..
Basic idea is that we all watch and post our thoughts on the film on or around 16th Feb.

Hahaha You asked for it And more to come from me as well later today.Shieldmaiden wrote:Jeez, charulata. First Four Nights with Anna and now this! I'm going to have to go watch something bleak and apocalyptic and Russian just to cheer up.
Actual thoughts to come...
I haven't seen Landscape but I think I know what you mean. I liked more than just the first scene.. the whole section up until when they actually begin their escape actually appealed to me esp. in the way you describe (visual storytelling). And some of the scenes that came after held the promise of a better (or at least more interesting to me) film.. like when the mother watches Lili and her boyfriend wistfully.. this sense that she lost her youth and zest for life and love way too early.Bandy Greensacks wrote:I thought the first scene was quite well executed, and a good example of using visual storytelling to explain character motivations and backgrounds. After that, though, it became kind of a melodramatic, misanthropic version of Landscape in the Mist, and really just made me want to re-watch that film.
That score was the worst part of the film for me. Drove me nuts.Oh, and Snapper is right about the music; the score sounds like an average musician trying to imitate Angelo Badalamenti and failing to grasp the intricacies.
Sorry to be of such little help but I have no idea. It was another one of those things that just felt like a self-consciously arthouse move to me.Quick question, with potential spoilers:

You don't need to apologize to me I am not disagreeing vehemently or anything!Shieldmaiden wrote:The score was just annoying, and I didn't even like the way it looked (sorry, char).
Likewise!Shieldmaiden wrote: This feels weird, because normally I avoid saying anything around here about films I don't like.
I Facebook stalked the actor who played the son and he's really foxy now, so at least something good came out of it
