Comes across as an obscure Renaissance play which has been badly modernised.
January 28, 2007
Not every turn in the story is well judged, but what's more damaging is that the film's general aura is not sufficiently powerful.

Ambitious and beguiling.

January 26, 2007
Bizarre, involving and highly original, this leftfield gangland fable adds up to a strange, surprisingly moving experience.

January 28, 2007
As painfully hypnotic as watching a religious zealot ranting in the street and carrying a banner proclaiming the second coming.
January 26, 2007
