Sad that so many beautiful decorations, make up, clothes, scenes and film stills were wasted for nearly nothing. The director's effort to deliver emotions through the tragedy and drama scenes were so weak, that I felt sorry towards the actors, who put the work in it. The movie was over boring, especially the flashbacks, which were totally emptied from the real sense of tragedy and emotion. Obviously, It is easily understood what the director and scenario author wanted to express, but unfortunately, they managed it in a very poor way.
