A very interesting film on multiple levels, but what impresses the most coming from this first-time feature director is how she balances and combines order and chaos, in terms of both subject matter and stylistic approach.
A confident, witty debut.
I am not much of a theorist; I rely on an aesthetic instinct more than trying for a particular formal approach.
