brilliant short film
13 April 2006 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

I have seen the film La Ruta Naturale a number of times now and still regard it as one of the most moving short films I have ever seen. A simple story told in reverse questions the nature of memory and experience in a very powerful way. There are no need for words because the images used tell the story so beautifully. I was very moved after seeing this film at Telluride and still remember it in detail. I was amazed to discover the director was only in his mid twenties, as the themes explored so successfully in this film intimate a much older and wiser spirit. The subtle mood and tone of the piece will no doubt go straight over some people's heads, but what can we do? Anyone is allowed to see a film and post a review of it on IMDb...
