I am unable to fully accede approval to the conceptual gambit that props up this otherwise totally exceptional adaptation. I believe the play says some pretty interesting things about mortality if one chooses to read it that way, but I take exception to being made to so bluntly read it that way. The performances, the direction, and the sense of genuine human investment make this thing otherwise totally transcendent.
It was more like a theatre play than a cinema film. The script which was based on Henrik Ibsen's play was nice. How the characters' characteristics unfold during their dialogues was interesting to watch. The film couldn't add to the text so much except for the performances.
