My favorite at the Midnight Sun Film Festival
23 August 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I attended 21 movies and discussions at the Midnight Sun Film Festival 2003 in the north of Finland.

La Pyramide Humaine was my absolute favorite. It has so touching moments in it, it's incredible. It's Cinema Vérité that hurts. It's making a movie for the movie to become cool, and not having books of pre-calculated knowledge about how the movie is to be made. Just knowing what a cool movie is, and capturing the cool moments once one is at that cool location with those cool people.

This movie-experience is incredible.
