Technically, Stoker is perfect. Beautiful photos, great music and interesting cadres are just some of the details that make the visual experience of seeing this film a true feast for the eyes. Director Chan-wook Park made sure that every detail, every shadow and every light be carefully tuned in order to from the first to the last minute managed to control the situation and build an environment in which no one will be comfortable.
The cast led by Mia Wasikowska who raised her acting to a very high level and fully justified the confidence. Alongside Mia significant contribution was given by Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman.
Chan-wook Park has rejected all possible clichés by Hollywood and prepared us a brilliant film worthy of his past projects.
