• Swinton gives a masterful, even luminous performance here- it may be her best work
  • Love the 400 blows– like stare and shot at the end of the film
  • The film is very meta and reflexive with Swinton talking to the camera
  • It is staged, designed (perhaps not to the level of detail) much like an early Greenaway film
  • Excelled period costume work
  • A narrative and stylized (and both married well) study of gender
  • 50 year increment title cards as chapter breaks
  • A top 10 of the year quality level film after 1 viewing
  • Highly Recommend
