aesthetically, it was a beautiful movie, with some very thought provoking effects, as well as tender symbolic simple scenes. for those who don’t like to read movies and think about what they’re seeing, then this is a movie to pass when you’re stroll…(read more)ing blockbuster. but if you’re the type to notice the tones, lights, symbols in a movie, then this is a worthy challenge.
the story itself was a little hard to catch as well, initially. but once you understand what’s going on, you’re pretty much sucked in by hugh jackman’s brilliant vulnerability (and wowzers physiognomy).
as far as the movie’s themes of love, immortality, and death, the conclusion can be a little complex and can really be open for interpretation, but i guess for me, sometimes, one attains immortality through death.
it was a pretty movie. and kinda sad.
