Putting the present into perspective
19 April 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

What made the film very beautiful, was how it shows in a light-hearted way how futile man is in history. The life of the people in the village is shown to the background of historical remains from different periods, philosophical chatter about the meaning of life, stories about the village in earlier days, the old castle being built into a 5-star hotel, state-of-the-art windmills erected in the neighborhoods and the 2003 American attack on Irak about to start. Beautiful too is the conversation between two Moroccans who immigrated to the region and who notice that it is funny that they live there in the place where their forefathers left their traces 800 years ago (the old castle in the village!) The film leaves one the question if the village with its last generation of inhabitants will undergo the same faith as the village dating from Roman times at the excavation site nearby.

The film is worth watching for the reason above, but you need to be in a patient mood however, because it is not too fast and takes long. If you give the film a chance you will step out feeling relaxed as the villagers in the film do.
