Stick with it. There are shocking acts that rupture the stillness, and then there's one of cinema's great endings, a wrenching, rapturous scene that would set both of those poets into embarrassed rewrites.

The film is lovely but punishingly slow, packed with imagery that seems at once hopelessly obscure and crushingly obvious.

It's a mood piece that makes you feel like you're drowning in high-grade art swill. If that sounds oppressive, know that it is, but the tonic is invigorating: a clammy atmosphere so unlike the airless options Hollywood's about to spring on us.
