One of the most moral and humane films. To shows such remarkable restraint with his form, knowing when to use broad strokes and when to simplify. Because of this the last act becomes more then just a superfluous grace note, it rises as one of the most elegant and necessary meditations on violence and tragedy
A romcom in which one brings baggage not from prior relationship but past lives. A film that opens with the woman busting the man mid-striptease proves surprisingly chaste, the monk-cum-hunk (sorry) proving his love by trying to save her from the consequences of her former self. The final act's lurch is less shocking for its ultraviolence than its meditation on same. To fix karma, one must sometimes defy it.
