This great movie offers a rare comfortable distance
The use of colors in this movie is quite impressive. I think the colors are truly beautiful, and I feel the use of colors here is somehow different from other movies, but I can't quite tell exactly how it is different. I'm also impressed by another hard-to-describe aspect of this movie: the comfortable distance between the audience and the characters. I find myself enjoy watching this movie many times, though I'm not really interested in the story and these kinds of characters. Why do I enjoy watching it while feeling uninvolved in it? It is because I feel very comfortable watching it. I feel as if there is an emotional space of a very appropriate size separating me from the characters. I don't feel the characters' feelings are too far away from me that I lose interest in them, and nor do I feel the movie pushes the characters' feelings so overwhelmingly close to me that I feel uncomfortable. I don't really know how the director can make me feel like this, and I wonder whether he intentionally created that pleasant distance.
