CGiii Comment

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.
