Was like watching visual magic realism. Many shots used reflections upon reflections, weaving an emotional tale that engaged intimately with the two main characters, Djbril and Trini. My favorite part about this film besides the incredible costumes, were each frame allowed your eye to digest into the detail, opening your senses to the story unfolding before you. It all made sense when director, Andrew Dosunmu, explained he came from a photography background. This is a beautifully styled film that displays how essential cinematography serves as a visual script.
