The cinematography is this film was incredible and beautiful. I also loved how it didn't hold back from some truly dark subject matter. For anyone that realizes that film is a visual medium and therefore doesn't need a concrete, spelled-out story, I strongly recommend this!
I can't wait to watch it again, and again on Blu Ray! Let's hope the US Blu Ray gets announced soon with the same extras. If not, I will definitely be importing.
