This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
it has some interesting aspects and very intense moments. full of clichés, when just goofy, it really is entertaining, but then the film falls apart trying to look serious, deep, emotional - the soundtrack suffering from the same problem, it has some hypnotic tunes that still echo in my mind, but i don't even want to think about that piano.
