a tribute to simplicity
1 May 2002 | by (Buenos Aires, Arg.) – See all my reviews

This is certainly one of the most curious films of 2001. Throughout one hour and thirteen minutes we are witnesses of the life of a lonely wood-chopper in the middle of the pampas. This may sound uninteresting, but actually it isn´t. The films produces a certain fascination, we are deeply moved by the way of life the character has, his isolation from the civilized world, the slowness of his existence in contrast with the rush of city life.

However, we do not feel sorry for this man. It´s just that his daily activities are so extremely different from what most of us are used to and the gap between him and us is so enormous that we end up admiring him. This movie is about understanding, beauty (in the most raw of senses), isolation and nature. But most of all, this movie is about humanity and here you have to make a choice: to be unable to understand the character and therefore think the movie is an overrated waste of time or, on the other hand, connect yourself with this man (even though both are different) through your humanity. Either way, I can tell nobody will feel indistinct towards this film.
