BLOGGER's VIEW -- dark dark and darker. I agree with the NPR review which said it's a bit like GAME OF THRONES and for some reason the bow and arrow reminded me of HUNGER GAME -- might just be me. I was looking for more sweeping cinematic views but as HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says this is a very "BLACK FAIRY TALE".
PS ON THE SETS/BEHIND THE SCENES:amazing to see the amount of exposure the TV magazine format shows gave this -- on location at the filming -- in the MIRROR room with Charlize and more. Amazing pre-promo tie-ins so that you could feel like you were behind the scenes-- which is what you and I have known for years-- we WANT to see the filming in progress and be on the sets every day if we could be !
