Cinematography was excellent. Mercy, so good.
I've actually enjoyed (recently) films that are a bit on the quiet-side.
Stuff with lots of air-space where you have a bit of time to collect some thought of your own and ask yourself a few questions about "what exactly is going on?"... and "where is this going?".
Film was definitely very different and definitely not for everyone.
In the end, I found that I just enjoyed it... as a change of pace.
I think anybody that dislikes is simply too plot-driven and can't accept a movie if it doesn't have a clear plot-line.
(This movie was sort of an ever-evolving plot-line with no clear "goal"... which may make it more like life than most movies really are.)
Overall, quite a nice recommendation.
Very different... which made for something that I thought was very good.
Glad you watched and enjoyed it!
Yeah I actually watched it again on Saturday. Amazing cinematography as you said, love the soundtrack too.
Mads Mikkelsen is just so powerful - impressive performance, not easy to do with his character not saying a single word in the entire film.
