For this film review I shall be taking a major interest in the color palette and the matte painting.The use of matte painting and the detail within them help to bring life into the world of the travelling nuns often times portraying impossible heights and over the top grandeur in its wide angle landscapes.  Fig. 2 "where once wine flowed and harem ladies cavorted, is a brilliant achievement in color composition."  - The New York Times, 1947The thought of building being built literally on the edge of a cliff evokes a sort of fantastical feeling from the viewer setting us up for the general mood of story of something being just on the edge of possibility with a hint of the fantastical.
