Reflections by Marion Hänsel. Ever since I began to walk, I've walked looking up, contemplating the clouds. This has never left me bored. Day after day, "the biggest screen in the world" presents a fascinating spectacle, ever changing and endless. What is unfolding above me, or below me when I'm flying, touches me deeply. An entire array of sensations corresponds to my mood, the moment, the intensity of the light. At times I feel contentment, joy, euphoria, and sometimes melancholia, solitude, serenity or even fear, suffocation, helplessness and anger. Most of the time I just feel the simple happiness of being alive, in a moment in time, a part of a totality where up and down doesn't exist. I'm surrounded by something infinitely light, I'm floating and feel part of the universe. These states of mind, provoked by the clouds, the desire to live, to create - must be universal; I'm sure. Written by Hannelore Goossens

beautiful scenery makes you leave the theatre all dreamy
13 April 2002 | by (groningen) – See all my reviews

this movie is like a beautiful portrait of the sky and makes you all dreamy, it should be projected on the ceiling of the theatre so that you can lay back and relax ! i would certainly have liked a setting like that, i heard that somewhere in holland a theatre actually did project it on the ceiling?
