Brilliant. Been following Mads since his work in the Pusher Trilogy with Nic Refn, a real force in front of the camera, fearless. Vikander was amazing as well. The writing, to the directing, to the stylization, the film was captivating throughout. A marvelous cinematic experience that I cannot speak highly enough about. It deserves all the praise it gets.
this was better than brilliant. it was captivating, heartfelt and a cinematic masterpiece to put it lightly. despite it's length, it goes by quickly and you become caught up in the web of enchantment and lies. it was beautiful, the acting was spectacular and i couldn't recommend it enough.
