What a rare treat! To be almost the first to review a picture. And this one! Cool ....
I am writing as I watch this. I think I can do this because I probably won't miss much. That's not to say you aren't missing anything. On the contrary ....
To watch how people handle silence is beautiful. Without silence you are nothing. I have to disagree with the reviewer that said being close to nature is not good for people. No wonder we suffer so much. This only expresses one way of dealing with nature. There are many. I do not think we have the best system so far.
Anyway, I do not want to get into a glorious argument about this. I am just so happy that someone has made a film where noise is not the way to communicate. Be honest! The shots of faces are stunning. Yekaterina Golubeva is STUNNING! I admit I wanted to watch the movie to watch her. What a tragedy she has passed so soon. Such an incredible looking woman who never seem to prioritise her looks to move forward. I wish I had met her in person.
I have been thinking of a TEDTalk to discuss no one is greater than you. This movie reminds me of the medium to achieve that.
Worth watching to learn to face your own silence.
