Beautifully filmed (almost).
Some startling imagery (tu-tu clad maoris).
Fantastic set design (the room of dolls).
An (inconsistent) great idea - it feels like a band promo and a few scenes don't work.
The daft hair really does detract from some of the beauty on show.
But...a huge amount of talent is clearly visible.
