You are in constant motion toward the junction, which is difficult to realize on stage. He filmed in the halls so as not to be distracted from reality. It’s not like Scotland. It has more psychological realism. However, a theatrical production, is also not similar. Joel compared it with German expressionism. You are in the psychological world, it is clear from the very beginning”, – quotes the edition Burwell.
