Nothing can prepare you for this film's sheer audacity, its eccentricity and its unashamed aspiration to poetry. What starts as a love story between a soldier and a peasant boy metamorphoses into a visionary retelling of a shaman legend of the forest and the hunting of a shape-shifting tiger-shadow. Seductive, sumptuous and scary, this is a brilliant adventure in structure and style.
