Verdict – 5/5

Pros –
1) Background score
2) Body-horror factor
3) Vigorously romantic
4) Cinematography
5) Supporting cast
6) An uncanny analogy with “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (Léa Seydoux/Nurse Ratched, Blind lover/ lobotomy, final escape)

 

Cons –
1) Ambiguous climax
2) I watched it as a sci-fi fan completely ignoring the subtle social satire.

 

Quote –
“Hotel Manager : What does the photograph show?
Lisping Man : A naked woman on a horse in the country
Hotel Manager : If I were in your shoes I would not be
ogling the naked woman but the horse”
