A stunning film, superficially. The design was lavish, with a wonderful juxtaposition of the regal and the filthy. The cinematography was a wild mixture of sweeping, artful moments and maniacal chaos. Jovovich's performance was heartbreaking and sincere. Unfortunately, the film's major downfall is its tone. A painfully annoying (and unpleasantly quirky) "realist" perspective to such a sacred story? Give me a break.
