Simply outstanding : Bert Haanstra creates a marvelous documentary film
8 May 2009 | by (FIPRESCI,India/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Glas-an industrial documentary film by famous Dutch documentary film maker Bert Haanstra is one of the best documentary films made in Europe and elsewhere.It is generally believed that documentary films are not so interesting as feature films.Glas is a film which will surely prove this myth to be wrong.Bert Haanstra has made "Glas" a rewarding film viewing experience as he has included lovely Jazz music instead of opting for any kind of commentary or voice over.The film appears interesting as glass makers are shown as smoking casually as this helps them in their work.They are confident that nothing would go wrong in the course of their work.The artistic dimension of "Glas" is established in a lovely scene which shows how many bottles crack in a series when a single stray bottle is cracked.It is as if a master artist has put numerous strokes of a painting on a single canvas.As painting is an art for an artist,glass making must also be considered as an art.The widespread popularity of this film has enabled many people to learn from it and use it for their works.One example of Glas being used concerns its showing at Film and Television Institute of India,Pune by renowned authority on cinema Mr.P.K.Nair.This is something which he has personally told to Mr.Bert Haanstra who has felt proud of this fact.
