[the end]

Wow.

OK, I’ve been doing er “liveblogging” of movies lately on this blog, but this movie was just so fascinating that I couldn’t really type anything while the movie was running.

At the start of this movie, I thought it was going to be a portrait of a misogynistic doctor… and then… it turns into something else. I mean, the storyline is pretty simple; straightforward even. But the way it’s told is just whooooa

I’m guessing this didn’t have a huge budget, so Zetterling made do, but the super-bright/infrared (?) bits are just sorta perfect. The actors are also incredibly… on… all the time, making this little period piece into something completely different.

It’s not a perfect movie, but it’s amazing.
