This movie should be seen more than once, and after some time has passed. The filming is gorgeous and unique. Every shot is beautiful and meaningful. Although the different scenes don't follow a conventional storyline, everything is connected, and as Piero Scaruffi writes, "intensely metaphorical [...] somewhere between Lynch and Tarkovsky territories."

I suppose the synopsis is accurate, but this movie takes place in some alternate reality that is never explained to us. 3 stars for the creative and enjoyable camera work, and the scenery.
