Review: The design isn’t very interesting. The title is off-kilter and the rest of the design has uneven elements, but none of it makes sense within the framework of the narrative.

Review: It’s rather amazing to me how many films have trailers that do a poor job explaining what the film is about. Sometimes, it’s a need of creating an air of mystery, but oftentimes, it’s done nonsensically and this trailer seems to be of that breed. It’s supposedly about art in wartime, but is it in a Nazi-occupied area, is it another war where art was attacked? It’s impossible to say by this trailer.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
