    Holy shit, was I WRONG about this one! When I first heard that Suspiria (1977), one of my favorite films of all time, was gonna get a remake, I was pissed.

    It's still very beautiful, atmospheric and really inspiring, but I did not expect him to make a film with such a conventional narrative.
    A film where the narration actually really suits the tone and never becomes annoying
    A very good, dramatic performance by Esther Garrel, that's a lot, but never becomes too much.

    A beautiful screenplay that's 100000x made…
