This is a very creative film, that's for sure. The different "scenarios" are amazing and the poem-like dialog gives an exquisite and epic flavor. And more than "folklore, mood, color and light", I think that's music what really glue the seven tales. I'm sure I don't understand this film, for I don't know the collection of ballads. So this film, for me, is more like an open door to a new culture. And yet, I loved it.
