Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good).
Objective Rating: 9/10 (1 point off for concept) c. 3.3/4 (Very good).

Not my sort of movie by a long shot, but it is hell of well done. Judging the music is a hard call; it’s very important to the film (the dead husband is a composer) and needs to work in a very specific way, like a 2nd lead character, and I don’t think it managed to do that, but it’s too good to not give it a point.
