I loved the movie. The main character, Guido lives through his internal mirage of sensations and visions, he allows his inner experience to create a wall around him, shielding him from the pain and from the emotional experience of the people that surrounds him in the outer world. He can\'t resist surrendering to the creations of his mental and emotional inner experience, leaving everyone that loves him or needs him behind. The question here is, is he wrong or is he right? If he is so lucky as to have a rich soul that demands all of his consciousness, should we blame him for that ? isn\'t that the very thing that makes him so irresistible? should we just pity the unsuspecting women that fall under his spell unaware that he will never see them as they see them? He does appreciate their beauty and their souls, but his loyalty remains with the call of his own soul. A much more powerful and alluring mistress that tolerates no competition. The visuals are stunning and the music is great, I would love to see a classic myth brought about in this style by the director of Nine.
