    So Little Attention . . . Such A Great Film
    ' can't understand the how limited the release of , and the promotion of this film are. The best movies usually start as a good story ; an acclaimed novel say , and are given to an accomplished director or he pitches it himself and when the money is place you find the best players you can get and pay for with the budget you have. This movie probably ticks all the those boxes and more. Alicia Vikander and Jude Law in the most compelling roles you could imagine with a adaptation of an imaginative and original novel and absolutely exquisite production design.

    This . . . Is . . . A great movie, period. ' did well at Cannes film fest, that says something , no ? I was totally caught up in the movie, the story and the performances for two plus hours duration of the movie. Not much gets an eight star rating from me, this one is, IMO ,a masterpiece. Certainly a master class in the art of cinema.
