  • saitosouta's rating of the film Shades of Fern

    E o calamitate suprarealistă și semiobscură, descurs în o pădure necuprinsă cu umbre verzi închis, a unei dragoste despre erotism culpabil de autoritate/subordine și bărbați jalnice care nu știe cum se înfățișează duioșia lor. împușcături spectrelor s-ar dedicat iubiricelor neîmpărtășite. // この映画は支配/被支配関係の罪深いエロスと互いへの愛をどう表現していいか分からなかった憐れな男たちを描きだす、広大な森を舞台としたシュールで陰鬱な悲劇だ。亡霊たちの銃声は報われなかった恋人たちへと捧げられるだろう。
