Farm folk, who are amiable and simple yet cunning lived here on this Farm. From time to time strangers come to the Farm. And it is then that all hell always breaks loose. Because the strangers have also brought death with them. And destruction. And hate. And jealousy. And vanity. And shame. And lies. On this Farm strangers always just cause trouble... Written by
On a scale of one to ten? Negative, if you ask me...
I was careless enough to let myself dragged into watching this, without checking first what I would go to see. BIG mistake. In short: this flick didn't work for me at all. Big time. Now, just for context: no, I'm not an action-and-shiny-fx-only-please guy. Yes, I do quite like good "art" movies. I do like Kurosawa, I do like Tarkovsky. I do like fantasy, and movies with an unlikely premise. I can happily watch Stalker, or Dogville, or even the grass growing, or the paint dry, if I can relate to it. But this, I couldn't. Sorry to disagree with everyone else here apparently, but one hour into the movie I was seriously considering starting to mentally calculate decimals of Pi, just to get away from it. Why? Because what you are presented with here are several unrelated stories of "miracles", that don't go anywhere. No real connection between them, other than (presumed) common location. No context in time or space. Hardly any spoken dialog at all. No reason is given for the miracles happening. No reason is given for nobody seeming to be seriously startled by the fact that they are happening at all. No conclusion of their significance is drawn, at least none that I can see. No possible cause or source or explanation is given or even proposed for them. No thought provoking issue or question is exposed. Let's see... have you seen the starting scene of "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" where the tossed coin comes up "heads" every time...? What if that movie abruptly ended right there, with that? What would that tell you? How would you relate to it? Would it be a great movie? - That's how I feel about this one. It just bounced right off me. I was just sitting there at the end, thinking "Wha...? What am I supposed to do with this?" Imagine watching a Picasso with a few random geometric forms on it - that's about as much sense as you can make of this flick. Unless of course it "clicks" for you, and you can fill it with your own answers and meanings. Well, I couldn't. It didn't even manage to touch me (emotionally), though I can see how it might, some of you (it does try, boy, it does...). If I ever TRULY and ABSOLUTELY wasted 90 minutes in my life, this had to be it. Utter crap as far as I'm concerned. Good luck to you if you still want to give it a try...
