A little gimmicky and a little pretentious, but still worth a watch.
Masterfully made, the entire film is one long take with no cuts. Not for everyone, but very beautiful none the less.
Beautiful, the visual style and techniques mesmerise. However, style takes front and center, so for many this could fall flat.
Makes you feel like an intruder in history. Beautifully filmed in one long take.
I can understand why some may view this as style-over-substance, but there is meaning and purpose to the one-take technique. A masterpiece.
Technically amazing and possibly fascinating to those with an in depth knowledge of Russian history, but not for the casual viewer.
The visuals are the movie. Not much of a story but a delight nonetheless.
the girls that gets it gets it the girls that doesn't get it don't
Simply breathtaking. One continuous shot capturing the unreal beauty of the Hermitage and its historical figures! A feast for the eyes
More clever than good. This film is one of those “one shot” movies that leave you wondering what the point was.
Beyond the production design and one shot trick, the story is convoluted and a little too metaphorical to be gripping for the whole runtime
I found it unwatchably dull. If you like walking around museums with irritable elderly relatives who hate everything; this might be for you
A sprawling, melancholic one-shot that makes you appreciate the effort of production and decadence in Russian history.
Be patient for this one, elegantly filmed and artfully crafted, can’t believe how long this probably took
