As Foriegn Films Go, This One Is Special.
Reading a film puts a lot of people off. That's understandable in that it's difficult to watch and read at the same time. Still, some films transcend this deficit and this is definitely one of them. It's an absolutely beautifully photographed feature. The language translation doesn't diminish it's value one bit. Rich sets, extraordinary costumes, near perfect lighting and photography worthy of the AFI, I'd say look for this one at the Oscars. If it's not in the foreign film category, it was cheated. See this film. If you're a fan of period costume dramas, you definitely won't be disappointed.
