“A beautiful beast of a movie”, I read. Appropriate take I think.
I was not aware of this particular story of Emily Bronte, even though I’m aware of the stories of this novelist and others of her kind. In this new take, what Andrea Arnold produces is certainly challenging. She comes and produces a completely shattered romanticism; this raw naturalism is absolutely outstanding not only for the film genre as it is for film in general. I believe she nails it, as a whole, it is a tremendous accomplishment. It’s beautiful, painful and naturalistic.
The film gradually grew in me and now I’m left with this song.
