Dear master roger you and james talked about lens soft baground. You said the soft baground really works well for some movies. Could you tell me some movies perfectly worked well except 'Son of saul' movie!

Some of Kurosawa's latter films were shot with long lenses, 'Ran' for instance. I remember seeing 'Elvira Madegan', by Bo Widerburg, and finding the soft focus 'look' almost unbearable. Correction! Not almost!

I believe mostly the Soft baground would work for romantic movies only.but you have said just' Elvira madegan'!
