i just finished watching it about five minutes ago. this film is so visually interesting. it is a surreal, magical realism-type faerie tale and love story along the lines of monty python + antonias line + like water for chocolate put into a michel gondry microwave.
the scenery is beautiful. the humour is dry, and quirky, but still very sexy. i love love loved it. i don't want to give away anything about the plot, so i'll just say watch it!!!
okay, well i will say nigel the cardboard box dog was awesome. now you are hooked, right?
thanks k for the awesome recommendation, you have turned me on to another classic to add to the arsenal of favourites!
adieu for now!
