    n o t e s :

    perfect cinematography.
    perfect post-production coloring.

    PIERRE NINEY 😍😍😍

    liked the setting in a post GREAT WAR EUROPE.
    liked the now-anachronic nationalism of those times.

    letters and lies, oh my!

    sweet story.
    weird love story.

    romantic as hell.
    tragic as hell.

    weird pace even if it feels slow and steady.

    [spend half of this film convinced PIERRE NINEY's character was the lover of FRANTZ].

    extra points for those musical numbers.

    n o t e s :

    even with the great ideas the writing shows this film takes things way too far.

    it is an overwhelming experience that does work wonders as an audiovisual spectacle for most of its running time.

    however, BOYLE makes some very odd choices in the third act regarding its unnecessary new villain.

    why aren't we able to see him?

    what a cast…
    BYRNE, EVANS, MURPHY, SANADA, STRONG, WONG, YEOH

    who would have thought back then that…

    ★★★★½

    scary and smart this film is as well crafted as every other movie but unlike many and based on a screenplay that homages and pays tributes to many genre classics JAMES WAN playful and resourceful directing makes the whole thing a dynamic and electric picture that never stops haunting you.

    ★★½

    stumbling while swinging between physical, raunchy comedy and over-the-top melodrama this film never lacks ideas, however the writing must have been a problem from the start since the movie fails to feel as a whole maybe because of its many turns and twists; nevertheless it is an enjoyable experience with many [maybe too many] things to keep you busy enough [the production design team had some fun with those sweet animated stories and the very memorable photoshopped pictures].
