Extremely beautiful cinematography. I can feel the influences of Rembrandt's paintings in this film due to its darkness and the usage of light. A hint of red or orange colours gives a touch of warmth to the muted colour palette that mostly consists of brown, black and grey. Just like its title, I can imagine every scene that I encounter in this film as a photograph.
