3.5 out of 10 From a visual prespective this film triumphs

Innocence has a purity to it so absent in contemporary film making so it was a pleasure to see this wonderfully crafted film. The photography is stunning throughout in fact it is breathtaking at times.

It does raise valid questions but its concept is not strong enough to leave any lasting effect on the viewer.

The park is cut off from the outside world by a huge wall with no door. In one of these houses, a group of girls aged between seven and twelve gathers around a coffin. The coffin lid opens, revealing a six-year-old girl. Her name is Iris. Bianca, the eldest of the group,...
