If you are a fan of excellent cinematography then this is well worth checking out. It is a very well made film in this area.
However, the story is limited. The characters are limited. The dialogue is limited. The acting is good but there isn't enough meat there for them to work with.
It is filmed in black and white. That disappointed me because I was looking forward to all the beauty of the islands. All the colours. The black and white detracted from that most of the time. Although sometimes it definitely added to landscapes and to the film in general.
Again, if you are a big fan of interesting & high quality cinematography, then this film is well worth checking out.
If you need more to enjoy a film, then I'd give this one a miss.
