"Beautiful sets, engaging cinematography, and measured pacing can't hide the fact that many characters simply don't have a relatable narrative or deep personalities. Some of the scenes and dialogue have not aged well at all. There are multiple scenes of severe sexual harassment that the makers of the film normalize and sublimate: in one case, the perpetrator even gets sentimental orchestral accompaniment as he sadly walks away from the incident. Please. First half 9/10, second half 6/10."
