Why can't Audrey Hepburn come through my bedroom window in the dead of night?
It's visually stunning and incredibly well acted by its lovely leads with rich and interesting characterisation. You also can't help but appreciate the efforts Robert Eggers has gone to make the film feel authentic using special cameras and accurate dialect.
However, as this film is set in one location with two characters there are of course some limitations to be found. Some scenes are slow and whilst there are some wonderful moments of nightmarish surrealism, the film never quite embraces…
Just watched this and feel like its given me a lot to process. This kind of film is definitely up my alley. It's strange, surprising and beautifully filmed. I just don't know if it got a bit silly towards the end? I'm sure there's lots of interesting ways the film can be read though and fair play for having the balls to break any genre constrictions.
