Interesting beginning, uninteresting ending
11 November 2004 | by (Athens GR) – See all my reviews

"La Libertad" means The Freedom and the story looks like it at the first 20-30 minutes of the movie where in no dialog, only the tiring chores of a young wood chopper and the terrible noises of chopping saw make a nice start for the film lover. The director makes very steady precise movements with the camera resulting into a slow pace. Still, after 30 minutes or so, this ''silent'' ode to ''man in the woods'' becomes a boring documentary about how wooden logs are chopped and carried to wood buyers due to dialog starting and ..it isn't interesting. Watch the first half (all of the movie) if you like man-nature-solitude themes. The director is very good and possibly "La Libertad" is an experiment for him since his is young also. I guess we may watch his ''progress'' in cinemas soon, hopefully.
