The producer wanted this to be a horror. The writer-directors did not. It shows. At times, the visuals and the audio jar, silly 'ghost-whooshes' and grandiloquent chords undermining the film's elegance. One horror scene comes off pretty well, but overall a sense of artistic sabotage permeates the second half. However, this only highlights that there is some good work in this toughly tender and culturally daring film.
