Fantastic stories and colors, twisted fantasies necessarily mask bleak reality. Another bleak reality is that such an incredibly imaginative and beautiful film has found so few screens. Recommended, if you like subversive fairytales, seek out this orphaned gypsy film that weaves incredible stories that unfold like magical blossoms in a dark and dangerous castle.
Ingenius and fascinating picture written by director Szabolcs Hajdu. Orsolya Torok-Illyes is downright amazing as Mona the narrator of our story. A strange mix of fairy tale, betrayal, magic realism and porn follows. Film's use of colour and contrast quite interesting but its the script and Mona's harrowing journey that keeps us enthralled. Top notch and look forward to more from this director.
