Customer Review

on 11 April 2008
This symbolic film may be weird to watch and difficult to enjoy, but over the decades it has become one of my favourite films. You will need to appreciate cinema art to like it. The story is deliberately stylized for its symbolic meaning but the art is spell-binding. The black and white photography is terrific and most of the difficulty is in the music, which is for church organ, but this music is important to the symbolism of the film. Stiff and "formal" is the style and haunting and magical is the overall effect. The role of the husband and the actor who plays him develops a lot of power along the way and this is one of my favourite character performances.
