The trailer I saw looks very cliched (as are, admittedly, most movie trailers), although the set design looks good. Hopefully it won't be another sluggish and overwrought American period piece like most of Scorsese's other films. I can't say that casting Leonardo Dicaprio as the lead is a real asset, either. His acting always something to be desired. (I pine for the days when Scorsese leaned heavily on Daniel Day Lewis. That man could act!)
Nothing in the voice of the cicada intimates how soon it will die.
