| Gem for those who appreciate this kind of movies
This movie might be a gift for some with sophisticated and unusual gusto. However it lacks many details that are important for making a movie a fully fledged oeuvre and make it easy for a wide range of viewers to appreciate. So I would better tell about it's merits.

1. Stunning, perplexing, pervasive, strange atmosphere. It's a very atmospheric movie.

2. The protagonist may be annoying but this is the way he is! This is such a kind of a person so you have an opportunity to grasp it.

3. Weird soundtrack helps you feel the atmosphere and dissolve the viewer's mind in the atmosphere of the film.

4. The settings (images) which is pretty rare to see elsewhere.

5. If you live fresh raw simplistic movies, this one is a good example.

6. Raw sounds make you feel inside the movie.
