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.
I really don't get the fuss around it: it's colorful and it builds a cohesive universe, but let's not get all Jodorowsky about it. To me, it changes directing choices a lot - and what is up with the music composition? That being said (it really disturbed me), I think it has some good moments - but it's not half twisted as it promised to be.
