There are numerous shots in the film, which are mind boggling and I still can't figure out how they achieved them. There were no special effects and no computer manipulation. This film is a visual tour-de-force and I recommend it to anyone interested in directing and cinematography.
What irritated me the most was the narration. I felt that the visuals were expressive enough without the additional voice-over.
Nevertheless, It was an extraordinary experience watching the film and I’ll never forget it.
