Tarsem makes music videos and ads for a living. Between takes for those, and with millions of his own money, he made this dark fairy tale. In 1915 a paralysed stuntman meets a sickly 9-year-old Romanian girl in LA. His words, spinning a yarn at first embellishing his own plight, take wild flight when we see them enacted in the child's imagination. It's a cinematic spectacular, told at a relaxed narrative pace.

Critics

“So audacious that when Variety calls it a "vanity project" you can only admire the man vain enough to make it.”
