A beautiful film
28 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Director Daniel Zirilli has fashioned an engaging and moving film in his recent adaptation of the popular story of the same name `The Stonecutter'

This poignant tale of a humble stone cutter, who wishes for more, relates a valuable life lesson about the difference between wanting and having. The story, which is told through the observation of a simple villager and his daily toil to feed his family, reaches deep into the depths of the search for self-satisfaction. This story examines the age-old questions `Who am I? What more could I be?

The Stonecutter brings this personal struggle and zeal for more to fruition with it's breathtaking photography and peacefully moving soundtrack.

Zirilli uses genuine performances juxtaposed with a tropical paradise to show the beauty of ordinary existence and all the simple pleasures we take for granted. During these times of uncertainty, war and an abundance of `ill feelings' The Stonecutter is a welcome reminder of the essential elements that true happiness is derived from.

My advice would be to turn off CNN for the night and huddle with the kids on the couch and watch a movie that offers some good old-fashioned entertainment.
