    A deeply romantic journey through the night, which resembles a flamboyant baroque painting.

    Teresa Vena, Cineuropa

    A melancholic and breathtaking work of art.

    The lush and sophisticated cinematography by Jieun Yi, with its old-school patina, elevates the film to an object of visual splendour.
