Diving to emerge
24 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

So damn' poetic and with so fine aesthetics, symmetric shots and with millions of whites, blacks and greys. Envolving and with a real character that though all its life diving, here emerges and capture us instantaneously.

There are movies that are fine examples of art, aesthetic and content all together. This is one of them.

P.V. Lehtinen, finish writer and director, shows us a movie filmed like a bird: clean, saline, pure, wide, inspiring.

It has only 21 minutes, but one would say, at the end, have seen a 4hours epic...
