| The low rating should be ignored. This is a gorgeous, relevant film.
As I say in the title, this is a gorgeous, relevant film, on multiple levels, without it being a complex, tiring film to watch, on the contrary, it is very purposeful and clear, yet also very beautiful and engaging, not to mention very stirring and moving. The cinematic language in which the story is told, made me long for more, and as cinema and storytelling go, I count this film as a triumph, so I rate it 10/10.
