this was entertaining, and you could tell the cast put forth their best effort which i really appreciate ! they really made the film much more charismatic. the musical numbers were fun, though they felt void of the charm the original scenes possesed. overall, i felt it was decent, but it inevitably still lacks the magic the animation has. i just don’t think this story translates as effectively into live action.
this was my first yorgos lanthimos film and i really enjoyed this !! the concept is so thought-provoking and obscure but it's executed in a way that is somehow beautiful, horrifying, and even comical, all at once. this is a wonderfully acted and peculiar film that i interpret as exploring the human need for genuine compassion and interaction, and how we can resort to animalistic behaviors in times of desperation. the way this was shot as well as the music made it all the more atmospheric and captivating. i really look forward to watching more films from this director !
