What an intense movie. I’ve heard of people going to see Black Swan expecting a nice film about ballet. How wrong were they! Just keep in mind who is directing (Darren Aronofsky) and be prepared for a challenging visceral experience.
You will either find it difficult to get into the story, or you will lose yourself in it. I was the latter. I couldn’t help but want more as we become emersed with the happenings of this small, pre-WWI German village.
