A disturbing and dark tale that is also rather dull. Some flashes of signature Gilliam visual flair, but mostly a weird and inaccessible tale that is generally unpleasant.

After watching the interview with Gilliam, I got more confused than I wanted to be. The thing is that the movie is too disturbing, but he speaks about the innocence of child. I understand his point, but I don't agree at all with his way of portraying that innocence. Beyond that, the movie is technically fantastic and it achieves the intended purpose. Very personal film by the director. Remarkable performances. It could compete easily with Pan Labyrinth. It's very similar.

This is a story of Jeliza Rose, a girl whose parents are junkies and leaves her to herself. She talks to herself, squirrels, dolls, her retarded neighbor. It is the best film of 2006 that I have seen. Thankfully I saw this in the theater. A beautiful performance by Jodelle Ferland.

Deserves a Zero

The film is just a nightmare. The acting is substandard, the plot makes no sense, and the idea of putting a child in a story with rotting corpses, heroin overdoses, and strongly hinted at incestuous themes is simply monstrous. Jeliza-Rose would have been better off with the Firefly family from The Devilís Rejects (which Gilliam makes look like Mary Poppins compared to this).

Gilliam must at some point realized the train wreck of a film he was making, and with his usual sense of irony decided to finish the film with an actual train wreck. Itís a fitting metaphor for the entire film. I can only assume that Gilliam was trying to create his own twisted version of The Wizard of Oz

There isnít a second to enjoy here, and what we are given is so insane and disgusting itís barely watcha...
