The longest film ever made
2 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although "only" around 1 hour and 47 minutes in duration, the pace of this film is so slow that, if you survive watching the whole thing, it feels as though you have sat through Gone With The Wind twice over. I enjoy independent films, basic plots etc, but the makers of this (and its "artistic" plaudits) should realise that two men roaming Spanish fields with minimal conversation (I think the word/name "Sancho" makes up about 20% of the entire vocabulary used) does not constitute a film, nor a useful translation of Cervantes. We learn nothing about the characters, their history, motives, loves, lives... nothing. Another practical curiosity is how Sancho remains so well formed, as neither he nor the Knight seem to eat anything for days on end !
