“Grave, beautiful, austerely comic, and casually metempsychotic... one of the wiggiest nature documentaries -- or almost-documentaries -- ever made.”~J. Hoberman, Village Voice
Aroview: This mesmerizing blend of wordless narrative fiction and spontaneous nature documentary – about the 'cycle of life' in a rugged valley in Italy’s mountainous region of Calabria – impresses for making something out of seemingly nothing.
At once awe inspiring and deeply contemplative, the film’s commitment to both the observation of everyday life, and from within the minutiae of its world, the stories that beg to be either invented or told, is sure to leave an impression on even the most jaded purveyor of arthouse cinema. Needless to say, a one-of-a-kind experience that’s best left to the viewer’s discovery.
