| Not Horror. An odd mix of genres.
This is a film about death--its meaning and how we cope with it. I'm not sure for me that the mix of genres worked. I was mildly disturbed by the horror, occasionally caught up in the wonder, and yet ultimately put off by the cloying sentimentality. It is quite a good movie in many ways: it's superbly acted, and some of the scenes are very original. I just don't think the blend worked for me. For once there was an American child actor who wasn't intensely irritating. He was rather sweet and I wanted him and his little butterfly book to survive. I guess a movie can't be all bad when it makes an impression. I won't ever see Christmas tree baubles in quite the same light again.
